Your choice for ageing
patients with NVAF

Real-world evidence reinforces LIXIANA® as your DOAC of choice for ageing patients with NVAF1,2

Data from a 1-year snapshot analysis of an ongoing observational study in 12,574 patients with NVAF (ETNA-AF* Europe),1 treated with once-daily LIXIANA® (edoxaban), reinforced the findings of the pivotal phase 3 study (ENGAGE-AF** European Cohort).2,3

ETNA-AF supports the efficacy and safety profile of LIXIANA® in routine clinical practice.

Lower incidence of major bleeding and major GI bleeding

than in the pivotal phase 3 study†1,2

Lower incidence of stroke/SEE

than in the pivotal phase 3 study††1,2

Simple and convenient dosing, once daily, with or without food4

For illustration only, trials are not directly comparable

In patients with NVAF and high CrCl, there is a trend towards decreasing efficacy with increasing CrCl for edoxaban vs. well-managed warfarin, therefore careful evaluation of thromboembolic and bleeding risk is necessary before initiation.

ETNA-AF is the largest DOAC observational study of NVAF patients to date5

Key inclusion criteria:

Adult patients treated with LIXIANA® for NVAF according to the SmPC.5

Primary outcome measures:

Bleeding events; drug-related AEs; CV and all-cause mortality.5

Primary objective:

To assess the real-world safety and efficacy of LIXIANA® in NVAF patients in real-life clinical practice for up to 4 years.5

13,980 NVAF patients from 825 centres in 10 European countries enrolled5

* ETNA-AF (Edoxaban Treatment in Routine Clinical Practice for Patients With Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation).

** ENGAGE-AF (Effective Anticoagulation with Factor Xa Next Generation in Atrial Fibrillation).

High bleeding risk defined as a HAS-BLED score ≥4, intermediate risk defined as a score of 2–3. Low risk is defined as <2. Total mean calculated score was 2.5 in ETNA-AF (Europe) and 1.4 in ENGAGE-AF (European Cohort).

†† High stroke risk defined as CHA2DS2-VASc score ≥2 for men or ≥3 for women, intermediate risk defined as a score of 1 for men or 2 for women. Definition CHA2DS2-VASc score: Congestive heart failure, Hypertension, Age (≥65=1 point, ≥75=2 points), Diabetes, prior Stroke/Transient Ischaemic Attack (2 points), Vascular disease, and Sex category. Total mean calculated score was 3.1 in ETNA-AF (Europe) and 4.3 in ENGAGE-AF (European Cohort).

Ɨ Patients should receive LIXIANA® 30 mg if they have one or more of: moderate or severe renal impairment (CrCl 15–50 ml/min), low body weight (≤60 kg) or concomitant use of potent P-gp inhibitors (dronedarone, erythromycin, ketoconazole, ciclosporin).

ƗƗ Includes patients who were randomised to receive LIXIANA® 60 mg O.D., with patient-specific reduction to 30 mg O.D. Please note that in ENGAGE-AF, LIXIANA® dose was halved to 30 mg if any of the following were present at randomisation or during the study: estimated CrCl 30–50 ml/min, body weight ≤60 kg, concomitant use of dronedarone, verapamil, quinidine3 – note that these criteria differ to the criteria for dose reduction included in the LIXIANA® SmPC, which include patients with one or more of: moderate or severe renal impairment (CrCl 15–50 ml/min), body weight ≤60 kg, concomitant use of the P-gp inhibitors ciclosporin, dronedarone, erythromycin, or ketoconazole.4

§§ CrCl calculated using the Cockcroft–Gault equation.

| Patient-specific dose reductions from 60 mg to 30 mg LIXIANA® O.D. in ETNA-AF – Europe were based on recommendations in the SmPC, i.e. patients with one or more of: moderate or severe renal impairment (CrCI 15–50 ml/min), body weight ≤60 kg, concomitant use of the P-gp inhibitors ciclosporin, dronedarone, erythromycin, or ketoconazole.4

|| In ENGAGE-AF, LIXIANA® dose was halved to 30 mg if any of the following were present at randomisation or during the study: estimated CrCI 30–50 mL/min, body weight ≤60 kg, concomitant use of dronedarone, verapamil, quinidine3 – note that these criteria differ to the criteria for dose reduction included in the LIXIANA® SmPC.

Major bleeding is defined by the ISTH as fatal bleeding, symptomatic bleeding in a critical area or organ, or bleeding that either causes a fall in haemoglobin ≥1.24 mmol/L or leads to transfusion of two or more units of whole blood or red cells.
