Drug: Placebo
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Any event of venous thromboembolism (i.e. Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and/or fatal or non-fatal Pulmonary Embolism(PE)) [ Time Frame: Time to first occurrence in the overall treatment period, with a median treatment period of 9,5 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • All cause mortality [ Time Frame: Time to occurrence in the overall treatment period, with a median treatment period of 9,5 months ]
  • Any event of the composite of venous thromboembolism or arterial thromboembolism/major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE) [ Time Frame: Time to first occurrence in the overall treatment period and during the "on Vitamin K Antagonist (VKA)" treatment period ]
    Time to first occurrence in the overall treatment period and during the "on (VKA)" treatment period, with an estimated average "on (VKA) treatment period" of 6 months
