The Hokusai-VTE Investigators: Edoxaban versus Warfarin for the treating Symptomatic Venous Thromboembolism Venous thromboembolism may be the third most common coronary disease following myocardial infarction and stroke, affecting at least 700,000 persons in North America annually .1-3 The standard treatment includes low-molecular-weight heparin accompanied by vitamin K antagonists.4 A number of studies established that new oral anticoagulants with or without initial heparin therapy work alternatives.5-8 Edoxaban is a primary inhibitor of activated element X with a rapid onset of action.

Among the 15 cohorts for which mortality data were available, all had positive net reclassification improvements. The bias-corrected estimates of net reclassification improvement were highest for the creatinine-based eGFR categories of 45 to 59 ml per minute per 1.73 m2 , 30 to 44 ml each and every minute per 1.73 m2 , and 15 to 29 ml each and every minute per 1.73 m2 . In sensitivity analyses that were stratified according to age group, sex, race, and position regarding diabetes, hypertension, and albuminuria, estimates of net reclassification improvement varied minimally . Meta-regression analyses demonstrated no cohort-specific factors that were significantly linked to the net reclassification improvement . Loss of life from Cardiovascular Causes The 10 general-population cohorts with data on deaths from cardiovascular causes included 64,010 participants, with 3193 events throughout a mean follow-up period of 8.8 years.
