SEATTLE, April 08, 2021, (PHARMIWEB) — Global Apixaban Market

Apixaban is an FDA-approved anticoagulant used for the treatment of venous thromboembolic events (blood clot) that form within a vein. Venous thromboembolic events (VTE) can occur without any prior symptoms or warning signs, and can go undiagnosed and unrecognized by a healthcare professional. Symptoms that usually do appear may be associated with pulmonary embolism (PE) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT), such as pain in the calves of legs, swelling in the ankle or foot, redness or noticeable discoloration spots, rapid breathing, chest pain, and others. Apixaban is sold under the trade-name of ‘Eliquis’.

Factor Xa is a trypsin-like serine protease that plays a key role in blood coagulation cascade. Therefore, the apixaban mechanism works on inhibiting the factor Xa, which in turn, decreases the clot formation stimulated by thrombin. Apixaban is indicated to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. The recommended dose of Eliquis, orally, is 5mg, twice a day. Apixaban is available in the market in the forms of capsules and tablets.

Global Apixaban Market Dynamics

Increasing prevalence of venous thromboembolism-related conditions is expected to aid in growth of the apixaban market. According to the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis 2014 facts, revealed that around 10 million cases of venous thromboembolism occur annually across low, middle and high income countries.

Moreover, increasing therapeutic indications for apixaban is most likely to boost the global apixaban market growth. For instance, in 2014, the U.S. FDA approved Eliquis for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) prophylaxis and pulmonary embolism (PE), and also for the risk reduction of recurrent PE and DVT, following initial therapies. Furthermore, government and private organizations are significantly investing capital in healthcare research and development and this is also likely to propel growth of the Apixaban market.

On the other hand, adverse effects of apixaban, such as increased risk of thrombotic events after premature discontinuation and bleeding is expected to hamper the adoption of this drug on a global scale. This in turn is expected to adversely affect growth of the market. A study published in the Current Medical Research and Opinion 2017 suggested that a major risk of bleeding is associated with use of apixaban.
