Venous Thromboembolism clinical trials at UCSF
2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
Venous thromboembolism is a condition where blood clots form in the veins. UCSF is recruiting for a clinical trial called "Apixaban for the Acute Treatment of Venous Thromboembolism in Children". This trial is studying the safety and effectiveness of a medication called apixaban in children with venous thromboembolism. There is another trial in progress, but it is not accepting new participants.
Apixaban for the Acute Treatment of Venous Thromboembolism in Children
open to eligible people ages up to 17 years
To assess the safety and descriptive efficacy of apixaban in pediatric subjects requiring anticoagulation for the treatment of a VTE.

Direct Oral Anticoagulants (DOACs) Versus LMWH +/- Warfarin for VTE in Cancer
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
The overarching objective of the study is to determine the effectiveness of LMWH/ warfarin vs. DOAC anticoagulation for preventing recurrent VTE in cancer patients. The intervention strategy is Direct Oral AntiCoagulants (DOAC) therapy with edoxaban, apixaban, rivaroxaban, or dabigatran. The comparator is low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) alone or with warfarin. The information gained will empower cancer patients and physicians to make more informed choices about anticoagulation strategies to manage VTE.
