Active Ingredient History
Apixaban is an orally active inhibitor of coagulation factor Xa with anticoagulant activity. Apixaban directly inhibits factor Xa, thereby interfering with the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin and preventing formation of cross-linked fibrin clots. Apixaban has been available in Europe since May 2012. An FDA decision on apixaban which was expected on June 28, 2012 was initially delayed before final approval on December 28, 2012. On August 21, 2014, Pfizer announced that apixaban was now FDA approved for treatment and secondary prophylaxis of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). It is being developed in a joint venture by Pfizer and Bristol-Myers Squibb. It has also been used to lower the risk of developing venous thrombosis post-orthopedic surgical procedures. NCATS
