With its first BLA submission, Portola was apixaaban approval for andexanet alfa as a reversal agent for patients anticoagulated with an oral or injectable factor Xa inhibitor—apixaban, rivaroxaban, edoxaban, or enoxaparin—who experience serious uncontrolled or life-threatening bleeding or who require urgent or emergency surgery. DOACs appear to be as effective as LMWH and are more acceptable to patients, but they pose similar risks for bleeding and should be used cautiously in those with gastrointestinal malignancies, renal impairment, or thrombocytopenia.
