Cancer Venous Thromboembolism (VTE)
A Phase 3b, Prospective, Randomized, Open-label, Blind Evaluator (PROBE) Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of (LMW) Heparin/Edoxaban Versus Dalteparin in Venous Thromboembolism Associated With Cancer
The primary objective is to demonstrate the non-inferiority of edoxaban (preceded by a short course of LMWH) compared with dalteparin for the prevention of the combined outcome of recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) or major bleeding in subjects with VTE associated with cancer during a 12-month study period. If non-inferiority is established, LMWH/edoxaban will be compared with dalteparin for superiority.

Phase 3
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Venous Thromboembolism (VTE)
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
  • Cancer
  • Drug: Edoxaban
    After the 5 day treatment with LMWH, patients receive edoxaban 60 mg once daily (QD) as 2 × 30 mg tablets (or 1 x 30 mg tablet QD for patients requiring dose adjustment) for the remainder of the treatment period.
    Other Name: DU-176b
  • Drug: Dalteparin
    Dalteparin was administered via subcutaneous injection at a dose of 200 IU/kg (maximum daily dose 18,000 IU) for 30 days, and at a dose of 150 IU/kg from Day 31 to the end of treatment.
    Other Name: Active comparator
  • Drug: Low molecular weight heparin
    Therapeutic doses of subcutaneous LMWH were administered for at least 5 days (to patients in the edoxaban group); this 5-day period may have included the pre-randomization LMWH (if applicable). The choice of parenteral LMWH was up to the treating physician.
    Other Name: LMWH
  • Experimental: Edoxaban group
    After 5 days of low molecular weight heparin (LMWH), patients receive edoxaban treatment daily - tablet for oral use
    • Drug: Edoxaban
    • Drug: Low molecular weight heparin
  • Active Comparator: Dalteparin group
    Participants receive Dalteparin treatment daily -solution for subcutaneous injection
    Intervention: Drug: Dalteparin

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Thrombectomy, insertion of a caval filter, or use of a fibrinolytic agent to treat the current (index) episode of DVT and/or PE;
