Key Considerations When Developing a DOAC – Part 3

The currently approved direct oral anti-coagulants have proven to be safe and efficacious in prevention of stroke in patients with AF. However, the choice of DOAC is influenced by several factors including specific patient characteristics (renal function etc.), preference of OD versus BID, physicians comfort with the drug and the cost of drug to the patient.

The Wearable Story – Part 1

The rapid consumer adoption of wearable devices for the collection of health data has inspired the next revolution in clinical trial operations. The integration of wearable health monitors with smartphones has opened up several fronts in clinical research. These integrated device-app-database systems can increase the frequency and accuracy of data collection, improve operational efficiencies, and achieve greater patient engagement in the clinical trial process.

Key Considerations When Developing a DOAC – Part 2

Direct oral anticoagulants were introduced in the market to simplify the anticoagulation treatment and eventually, replace warfarin. As previously discussed, these new agents have some advantages over warfarin. One of those advantage is that all DOACs are administered in fixed doses, only adjusted for specific factors like renal functions (in some cases). Since 2008, the US and EU regulatory bodies have approved several DOACs for specific indications based on their clinical trials demonstrating non-inferiority to warfarin. The availability of DOACs have changed the way stroke prevention in AF is managed.
