Brief Summary:
A multicenter, adaptive, randomized platform trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of antithrombotic strategies in patients with COVID-19 following hospital discharge

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Covid19 Drug: Apixaban 2.5 MG Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This study is an adaptive, prospective, randomized platform trial designed to compare the effectiveness and safety of antithrombotic therapy with no antithrombotic therapy after hospitalization for 48 hours or longer for COVID-19. For Stage 1 of this study, participants will be randomized to either prophylactic anticoagulation or matching placebo for 30 days, and then followed for an additional 60 days after the completion of treatment (total duration of follow-up, 90 days).

The primary objective is to determine the most effective and safe antithrombotic strategy to prevent the composite outcome of symptomatic deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, other venous thromboembolism, ischemic stroke, myocardial infarction, other arterial thromboembolism, and all-cause mortality by 30 days following discharge from the hospital.

Biobanking of samples for future biomarker and mechanistic studies will be available for centers able to participate and collect samples from eligible participants. Samples will be collected at the time of enrollment and after the completion of 30 days of therapy

Drug Information available for: Apixaban

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Apixaban
Drug: Apixaban 2.5 MG Participants will be given study medication at the time of discharge from the hospital. Participants will take Apixaban 2.5 MG twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, for 30 days. Participants will be contacted (electronic or telephone) 2 days after starting the study medication and contact will continue up to day 90 after starting study treatment. Follow up will be through electronic and/or telephone contact depending on the participant's preference, compliance, and medication adherence. Participants will be queried for any clinically relevant endpoints, especially major bleeding or a need to seek healthcare attention for any reason. Follow-up will occur from the time of discharge and through the 30 day study period, with contacts 2 days, 10 days, 20 days, and 30 days after discharge. Two additional study contacts will take place 45 days and 90 days after discharge.
Drug: Apixaban 2.5 MG
Participants will take Apixaban 2.5 MG twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening for 30 days. Participants will be contacted (electronic or telephone) 2 days after starting the study medication and will continue up to day 90 after starting study treatment. Followup will occur from the time of discharge through the 30 day study period with contacts at 2 days, 10 days, 20 days and 30 days after discharge. Two additional study contacts will take place 45 days and 90 days after discharge.
Other Name: Eliquis

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Drug: Placebo Participants will be given study medication at the time of discharge from the hospital. Participants will take the Placebo twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, for 30 days. Participants will be contacted (electronic or telephone) 2 days after starting the study medication and contact will continue up to day 90 after starting study treatment. Follow up will be through electronic and/or telephone contact depending on the participant's preference, compliance, and medication adherence. Participants will be queried for any clinically relevant endpoints, especially major bleeding or a need to seek healthcare attention for any reason. Follow-up will occur from the time of discharge and through the 30 day study period, with contacts 2 days, 10 days, 20 days, and 30 days after discharge. Two additional study contacts will take place 45 days and 90 days after discharge.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Composite outcome of symptomatic deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, other venous thromboembolism, ischemic stroke, myocardial infarction, other arterial thromboembolism, and all-cause mortality as measured by hospital records. [ Time Frame: 30 days after hospital discharge ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The composite outcome of symptomatic deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, other venous thromboembolism, ischemic stroke, myocardial infarction, other arterial thromboembolism, and all-cause mortality as measured by hospital records. [ Time Frame: 45 days after hospital discharge ]
  2. The composite outcome of symptomatic deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, other venous thromboembolism, ischemic stroke, myocardial infarction, other arterial thromboembolism, and all-cause mortality as measured by hospital records. [ Time Frame: 90 days after hospital discharge ]
  3. New, symptomatic VTE (inclusive of DVT, PE, or other venous thrombosis) for up to 30 days after randomization as measured by hospital records. [ Time Frame: 30 days after reandomization ]
  4. New, symptomatic ATE (inclusive of ischemic stroke, MI, or peripheral arterial thromboembolism) for up to 30 days after randomization as measured by hospital records. [ Time Frame: 30 days after randomization ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. The incidence of all-cause mortality [ Time Frame: 30 days following discharge from hospital ]
