1 AHA International Stroke Conference, Pre-Con Symposium, February 5, 2013 Old Agent, New Agent or No Agent? The Decision to Anticoagulate Patients with Atrial Fibrillation Daniel E. Singer, MD Massachusetts General Hospital Harvard Medical School
2 Status of Oral Anticoagulants for AF, approved NOACs; 1 pivotal RCT left New indications, contraindications Multiple secondary studies from pivotal trials Accumulating clinical experience, particularly with dabigatran; FDA reports Main message: The novel anticoagulants look very good. But well-controlled warfarin remains a good choice, as well. 2
3 Stroke Prevention in AF: Core Facts 1. AF is the most common significant arrhythmia 2. AF prevalence strongly age-dependent 10% of age 80+ years 3. RR for stroke = 5; AF accounts for 15+% of all strokes in U.S. 4. Multiple RCTs: Warfarin reduces the risk of ischemic stroke by 68% (ITT). In primary prevention, the tradeoff: 15 ischemic strokes for 1 ICH. 5. ASA s effect is negligible to small.
4 The Optimal INR for AF Circ Cardiovasc Qual Outcomes 2009;2:
5 Anticoagulation for AF: For Whom? Guideline perspective: Anticoagulate AF patients whose risk of stroke is high enough to merit the burden and risk of warfarin therapy. ASA or no antithrombotic for others.

9 Warfarin works, but there are many problems with achieving high quality warfarin anticoagulation.
10 Clotting Cascade and Drug Antagonists Nature 2009;45:
11 Novel Anticoagulants Direct thrombin or factor Xa inhibitors Where warfarin blocks the synthesis of functional clotting factors (II, VII, IX, X), the new anticoagulants competitively inhibit single key activated factors in the bloodstream and site of thrombus. Anticoagulant effect: rapid onset and offset; warfarin effect is slow and steady.

Circulation 2011;123:
22 Pradaxa: FDA Post-Marketing Concerns 12/07/11: Package insert update recommends frequent monitoring of renal function. 12/29/12: Contraindicated in patients with mechanical heart valves.
23 Pradaxa: FDA Drug Safety Communication: Update on the risk for serious bleeding, 11/02/12 October August 2012: ~3.7 million Pradaxa prescriptions ~ 725,000 patients from U.S. outpatient pharmacies. For new users: RR for ICH + GIB, warf/dabi RR for GIB; RR for ICH NB: unadjusted The results of this Mini-sentinel assessment indicate that bleeding rates associated with new use of Pradaxa do not appear to be higher than bleeding rates associated with new use of warfarin, which is consistent with observations from the large clinical trial used to approve Pradaxa (the RE-LY.trial).

45 The ARISTOTLE Trial Fewer strokes (mainly decreased hemorrhagic stroke) Fewer bleeds (~same as ASA per AVERROES RCT) Fewer intracranial hemorrhages Extremely positive results; FDA approval for AF, Dec 28, Black box re discontinuations.
46 Other Novel Agents to Prevent Stroke in AF* Edoxaban/DU 176-b (ENGAGE-AF TIMI 48), FXa-I, high (60 mg qd) and low dose (30 mg qd) n=20,500, recruitment complete, in follow-up. *ClinicalTrials.gov
47 Novel Anticoagulants for AF: What have we learned? 1. In trials, novel anticoagulants are clearly as good as moderately controlled warfarin and probably are better. The reduction in ICH is an unexpected but crucially important benefit. 2. The initial analyses from clinical care indicate that dabigatran s safety is no worse than warfarin s. 3. However, it is not certain that patients on well-controlled warfarin (TTR ~75+%) have much to gain, other than convenience, by switching to NOAC.
48 AF Guidelines ACCF/AHA/HRS, 2011, Focused Update: Dabigatran is useful as an alternative to warfarin ESC, 2012, Focused Update: NOACs should be considered rather than adjusted dose VKA (INR 2-3) for most patients with nonvalvular AF ACCP 9, 2012: Dabigatran 150mg bid favored over warfarin Circ, epub Feb 14, 2011 Europace Oct;14(10): Chest 2012;141(2 Suppl):e531S-75S.
49 Potential Beneficial Impact of Novel Anticoagulants Enlarging the % AF patients well protected from ischemic stroke Attracting the warfarin-reluctant Lowering stroke risk threshold for anticoagulants Reducing intracranial hemorrhage
50 OAC for AF: Choice of Agent Patients at moderate to high stroke risk, i.e., CHADS2 1: OAC or NOAC TTR>75%: Warfarin remains OK Poor TTR in compliant patient: NOAC indicated New starts, willing to try new meds, and cost is acceptable: NOACs have advantages
51 OAC for AF: Choice of NOAC All appear worthy; no head-to-head comparisons No reversal agent; no quantitative monitoring test in US Dabigatran Particularly effective for ischemic stroke (150mg bid) Seems safe in clinical care Most sensitive to renal insufficiency Dyspepsia; higher extracranial bleed risk in elderly Apixaban Most impressive trial results, partic. very good bleed results Risk on discontinuation Rivaroxaban Once daily Effective in the highest risk patients DVT/PE Rx indication Risk on discontinuation
52 OAC to Prevent Stroke in AF: The Beginning of the NOAC Era Truly remarkable period; a success story for modern drug development and for our patients. Multiple options, including improved warfarin: Used properly, all OACs very effective and adequately safe. We need to accumulate more clinical experience with the NOACs to validate performance in usual care and better address multiple practical problems: management of interruptions, bleeds, strokes, concomitant meds, and generally optimizing match of patient with OAC agent.
