Daiichi-Sankyo expects its new anti-coagulant edoxaban will be launched before the end of 2016.

Edoxaban’s indications will be the reduction in risk of stroke and systemic embolic events (SEE) in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) and the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) and the prevention of recurrent VTE. Clinical studies proved that edoxaban is safer than warfarin and as effective as warfarin.

An official of Daiichi-Sankyo said, “Edoxaban is taken once daily. It met major clinical standards in a large clinical trial. It is competitive enough.”

Currently Pradaxa, Xarelto, and Eliquis are approved for marketing in South Korea.
