Active Ingredient History
Rivaroxaban (trade name Xarelto) is an oral anticoagulant. It is the first available orally active direct factor Xa inhibitor. Upon oral administration, rivaroxaban selectively binds to both free factor Xa and factor Xa bound in the prothrombinase complex. This interferes with the conversion of prothrombin (factor II) to thrombin and eventually prevents the formation of cross-linked fibrin clots. Rivaroxaban does not affect existing thrombin levels. Activation of factor X to factor Xa (FXa) via the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways plays a central role in the cascade of blood coagulation. Xarelto is indicated to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation, treatment and prophylaxis of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) which may lead to PE in patients undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery, pulmonary embolism (PE) and for the reduction in the risk of recurrence of deep vein thrombosis and of pulmonary embolism following initial 6 months treatment for DVT and/or PE.
