The efficacy of high dose and low dose Edoxaban, an oral factor Xa inhibitor, was compared to Warfarin in patients with high risk a-fib. The efficacy endpoint was stroke or systemic embolus, the safety endpoint was bleeding. Edoxaban was non-inferior to Warfarin for both doses in terms of efficacy, and was associated with reduced risks of bleeding and cardiovascular death.
