  Purpose

This study is to demonstrate the safety and efficacy profile, in two different dose regimens of Edoxaban (DU-176b), (an investigational new drug being tested for the prevention of stroke/systemic embolic events (SEE)), in individuals with atrial fibrillation. Patients will be randomized to one of three treatment groups: High Dose Regimen, Low Dose Regimen, & Warfarin. The expected duration of the study is 24 months.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary objective is to compare Edoxaban to warfarin with regard to the composite primary endpoint of stroke and systemic embolic events. [ Time Frame: 24 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare Edoxaban to warfarin with regard to the composite clinical outcome of stroke, SEE, and all-cause mortality [ Time Frame: 24 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To compare Edoxaban to warfarin with regard to major bleeding events [ Time Frame: 24 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
