Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited's Once-Daily Lixiana® (Edoxaban) Receives Positive CHMP Opinion for the Prevention of Stroke and Systemic Embolism

Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited announced that the European Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has recommended approval of Lixiana® (edoxaban), an oral, once-daily selective factor Xa inhibitor, for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism (SE) in adult patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) with one or more risk factors. The CHMP also recommended approval of Lixiana for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), and prevention of recurrent DVT and PE in adults. The two related conditions DVT and PE are collectively referred to as venous thromboembolism. The CHMP opinion to approve once-daily edoxaban for the prevention of stroke and SE in adult patients with NVAF with one or more risk factors and for the treatment and prevention of recurrent VTE (DVT and PE) is based on the data of the phase 3 ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 and Hokusai-VTE studies, respectively. In the ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 study, once-daily edoxaban 60 mg demonstrated non-inferiority to well-managed warfarin for the primary efficacy endpoint of occurrence of stroke or SE in patients with NVAF (1.18% vs. 1.50% per year, respectively; hazard ratio [HR], 0.79; 97.5% confidence interval [CI], 0.63 to 0.99, pAbout the ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 Study. ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 (Effective aNticoaGulation with factor xA next GEneration in Atrial Fibrillation) was a three-arm, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, global phase 3 clinical trial comparing once-daily edoxaban with well-managed warfarin in 21,105 patients with NVAF at moderate-to-high risk of thromboembolic events at 1,393 centers in 46 countries. ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 compared two edoxaban treatment strategies, a higher dose arm (60 mg or 30 mg dose reduced) once-daily and a lower dose arm (30 mg or 15 mg dose reduced) once-daily, with warfarin in patients with NVAF for a median of 2.8 years follow-up. Patients were dose reduced for CrCL 30 to 50 mL/min, body weight of 60 kg or less or certain P-gp inhibitor use. ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 represents the large and longe single comparative global trial with a novel anticoagulant in patients with NVAF performed to date. The full results were presented at the AHA Scientific Sessions 2013 in Dallas and published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
