Drug Information available for: Apixaban

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Andexanet
Andexanet (antidote)
Biological: Andexanet
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo
Other: Placebo



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Efficacy: Percent Change From Baseline in Anti-fXa Activity at the Nadir (Parts I and II) [ Time Frame: Baseline to +2 minutes or +5 minutes following the end of andexanet/placebo bolus (Part I), or 10 minutes prior to end of andexanet/placebo continuous infusion or 5 minutes after the end of andexanet/placebo continuous infusion (Part II) ]
    In Part I, the primary endpoint was percent change from baseline in anti-fXa activity at the nadir, when nadir was defined as the smaller value for anti-fXa activity at the +2 minutes or +5 minutes time point following the end of the bolus. In Part II, the primary endpoint was the percent change from baseline in anti-fXa activity from its baseline to nadir, when nadir was defined as the smaller value for anti-fXa activity between the 110-minute time point (10 minutes prior to the end of the continuous infusion) and the 5-minute time point after the end of the continuous infusion. The baseline for the primary endpoint in both parts was the anti-fXa activity just prior to administration of andexanet, 3 hours following the Day 4 dose of apixaban. Anti-fXa activity was measured by a modified chromogenic assay.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Efficacy: Percent Change From Baseline in Anti-fXa Activity at the Nadir (Part II) [ Time Frame: Baseline to +2 minutes or +5 minutes following the end of andexanet/placebo bolus (Part II) ]
    The percent change from baseline in anti-fXa activity at the nadir, following the bolus, when nadir was defined as the smaller value for anti-fXa activity at the +2 minute or +5 minute time point after the completion of the andexanet bolus (Part II). Baseline was the last assessment obtained prior to the first dose of andexanet or placebo

  2. Efficacy: Number of Participants With ≥80% Reduction in the Anti-fXa Activity From Baseline to Nadir [ Time Frame: Baseline to +2 minutes or +5 minutes following the end of andexanet/placebo bolus (Part I), or 10 minutes prior to end of andexanet/placebo continuous infusion or 5 minutes after the end of andexanet/placebo continuous infusion (Part II) ]
    Occurrence of ≥80% reduction in anti-fXa activity from its baseline to nadir, when nadir was defined as the smaller value for anti-fXa activity at the +2 minute or +5 minute time point after the completion of the andexanet bolus (Part I) or between the 110-minute time point (10 minutes prior to the end of the continuous infusion) and the 5-minute time point after the end of the continuous infusion (inclusive) [Part II]. Baseline was the last assessment obtained prior to the first dose of andexanet or placebo

  3. Efficacy -Change From Baseline in Free Apixaban Concentration at the Nadir [ Time Frame: Baseline to +2 minutes or +5 minutes following the end of andexanet/placebo bolus (Part I), or 10 minutes prior to end of andexanet/placebo continuous infusion or 5 minutes after the end of andexanet/placebo continuous infusion (Part II) ]
    Change from baseline in free apixaban concentration (ng/mL) at the nadir, when nadir was defined as the smaller value for free apixaban at the +2 minute or +5 minute time point after the completion of the andexanet bolus (Part I) or between the 110-minute time point (10 minutes prior to the end of the continuous infusion) and the 5-minute time point after the end of the continuous infusion (inclusive) [Part II]. Free plasma concentrations of apixaban was determined using a validated method that involved analysis of citrated human plasma with high-throughput equilibrium dialysis followed by liquid chromatography mass spectrometry.

  4. Efficacy: Change in Thrombin Generation (ETP) From Baseline to Its Peak [Parts I and II] [ Time Frame: Baseline to +2 minutes or +10 minutes following the end of andexanet/placebo bolus (Part I), or 10 minutes prior to end of andexanet/placebo continuous infusion or 5 minutes after the end of andexanet/placebo continuous infusion (Part II) ]
    Change in ETP from baseline to its peak, where peak was defined as the largest value for ETP between the +2 minute time point and the +10 minute time point after the end of the andexanet bolus (inclusive) {Part I] or between the 110-minute time point (10 minutes prior to the end of the continuous infusion) and the 5-minute time point after the end of the continuous infusion (inclusive) [Part II]. Baseline was the last assessment obtained prior to the first dose of andexanet or placebo. ETP was measured using a tissue factor-initiated thrombin generation assay.

  5. Efficacy: Number of Participants With Thrombin Generation (ETP) Above the Lower Limit of the Derived Normal Range at Its Peak (mITT Population) [ Time Frame: Baseline to +2 minutes or +10 minutes following the end of andexanet/placebo bolus (Part I), or 10 minutes prior to end of andexanet/placebo continuous infusion or 5 minutes after the end of andexanet/placebo continuous infusion (Part II) ]
    Number of participants with ETP above the lower limit of the normal range at its peak, between the +2 minute time point and the +10 minute time point after the end of the andexanet bolus (inclusive) [Part I] or between the 110-minute time point (10 minutes prior to the end of the continuous infusion) and the 5-minute time point after the end of the continuous infusion (inclusive) [Part II]. ETP was measured using a tissue factor-initiated thrombin generation assay
