  Purpose

This trial will include patients who have a heart condition called atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is an abnormal rhythm (irregular beat) in the heart. Patients with atrial fibrillation have an increased chance for a blood clot to form in the heart and move to other blood vessels in the body and cause obstruction. This obstruction may damage tissue. For example, a blood clot plugging a vessel in the brain could cause a stroke. Therefore, patients with atrial fibrillation may be given anticoagulant (blood-thinning) tablets such as warfarin or acenocoumarol.

The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of a new injectable anticoagulant drug that is administered once weekly, SR34006 with warfarin or acenocoumarol tablets.

Assignment to either SR34006 Injection or vitamin K antagonist (warfarin or acenocoumarol) tablets will be purely by chance and will be known by both patients and their doctors.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • ECG-documented atrial fibrillation (AF) and an indication for long-term vitamin K antagonist (VKA) therapy based on the presence of at least one of the following risk factors:

    1. previous ischemic stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA) or systemic embolism
    2. hypertension requiring drug treatment
    3. left ventricular dysfunction (left ventricular ejection fraction <45% or symptomatic congestive heart failure)
    4. age >75 years
    5. age between 65-75 years plus diabetes mellitus, or
    6. age between 65-75 years plus symptomatic coronary artery disease (previous myocardial infarction (MI) or angina pectoris)
  • Written informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Legal lower age limitations (country specific)
  • Indication for VKA other than AF, including prosthetic heart valves, venous thromboembolism, and planned cardioversion
  • Transient AF caused by a reversible disorder
  • Active bleeding or high risk of bleeding
  • Recent (<15 days) or anticipated invasive procedures with potential for uncontrolled bleeding, including major surgery
  • Participation in another pharmacotherapeutic study within the prior 30 days
  • Creatinine clearance <10 mL/min, severe hepatic disease, or bacterial endocarditis
  • Uncontrolled hypertension: systolic blood pressure > 180 mm Hg and/or diastolic blood pressure > 110 mm Hg
  • Pregnancy or childbearing potential without proper contraceptive measures
  • Breastfeeding
  • Any other contraindication listed in the labeling of warfarin or acenocoumarol
