Patients on oral anticoagulants need rapid reversal of the anticoagulant effect in case of acute bleeding or emergency surgery. Prothrombin Complex Concentrates are known to provide a fast reversal of the anticoagulant effect, with several advantages over alternatives like vitamin K or FFP.The planned clinical Phase III study is designed to provide clinically relevant data on efficacy and safety.
