To register for the on demand webcast please login or create an account.

The recent results of apixaban in the CARAVAGGIO study in patients with cancer associated thrombosis, including patients with gastro-intestinal cancer with very high risk of gastro-intestinal bleeding, have triggered us to organize this webcast. Additionally we will discuss results of studies in different patient sets (non-cancer VTE and AF).

In this webcast, pertinent published data available on all DOACs versus comparators are presented by international key opinion leaders in the field of venous thromboembolism treatment and stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation. This webcast will give the audience insight into results of clinical trials as well as real world studies, emphasizing the clinical relevance of differences between DOACs, and how this may support in their choice of treatment.
