Press Release

Portola Pharmaceuticals Announces Upcoming Data Presentations on AndexXa™ (andexanet alfa) at Neurocritical Care Society 2016 Annual Meeting


Posted on: 13 Sep 16

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Sept. 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Portola Pharmaceuticals Inc.® (Nasdaq:PTLA) today announced that Phase 3 clinical data and preclinical data from studies of the Company’s Factor Xa inhibitor antidote AndexXaTM (andexanet alfa) will be presented in poster sessions at the upcoming 14th Annual Neurocritical Care Society Meeting, which will take place from September 15-18 in National Harbor, Md. Additionally, results of a retrospective chart review on treatment patterns and outcomes of patients receiving oral Factor Xa inhibitors who experienced life-threatening intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) will be presented in a poster session.

AndexXa, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-designated Breakthrough Therapy, is in development for patients treated with a direct (apixaban, rivaroxaban, or edoxaban) or indirect (enoxaparin) Factor Xa inhibitor when reversal of anticoagulation is needed due to life-threatening or uncontrolled bleeding. Currently, there is no FDA-approved antidote to reverse the anticoagulant activity of Factor X inhibitors. Portola is committed to conducting and supporting research to understand the real-world management, outcomes and resource utilization of Factor Xa inhibitor-associated major bleeding in order to improve morbidity and mortality in these patients.

The abstracts are now available at http://www.neurocriticalcare.org/Meetings/2016-Annual-Meeting/2016-Abstract-Submission-and-Poster-Information. Following are details of the poster presentations, which will take place in Prince George Exhibit Hall A of the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. The posters will include additional data not available in the posted abstracts.
