The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of Innohep® in preventing the recurrence of VTE in patients with active cancer who have had an acute VTE episode.
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||Efficacy and Safety of Long-Term (6 Months) Innohep® Treatment Versus Anticoagulation With a Vitamin K Antagonist (Warfarin) for the Treatment of Acute Venous Thromboembolism in Cancer Patients / IN 0901 INT
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Composite end-point represented by the time in days from randomisation to the first occurrence of VTE [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Symptomatic non-fatal DVTs.
- Symptomatic non-fatal PEs.
- Fatal PE.
- Incidental proximal DVT (popliteal vein or higher).
- Incidental proximal PE (segmental arteries or larger).
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Time in days from randomisation to the first occurrence of VTE. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- The 5 individual components of the composite primary efficacy endpoint.
- A composite endpoint of symptomatic DVT and/or PE, including fatal PE.
Safety endpoints will consist of bleeding and overall mortality
