The NHS has launched a best-practice website to help educate healthcare professionals about one of the most common causes of preventable hospital deaths in the UK.

VTE trial boost for Pfizer and BMS' apixaban

Pfizer and Bristol-Myers Squibb’s oral anticoagulant apixaban has shown benefits over a standard injectable treatment for venous thromboembolism in a late-stage trial.

ADVANCE-3, a randomised, double-blind, multicenter, head-to-head phase III trial, showed apixaban was statistically superior to once-daily enoxaparin in reducing the incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients undergoing elective total hip replacement surgery. 

The goal of a superiority clinical trial is to determine if a new therapy is superior to an established therapy or placebo.
