A Study to Assess the Effectiveness and Safety of Rivaroxaban in Reducing the Risk of Death Myocardial Infarction or Stroke in Participants With Heart Failure and Coronary Artery Disease Following an Episode of Decompensated Heart Failure


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness and safety of rivaroxaban compared with placebo (inactive medication), in reducing the risk of death, myocardial infarction or stroke in participants with heart failure and significant coronary artery disease following an episode of decompensated heart failure.

Detailed Study Description

This is a randomized (the study medication is assigned by chance), double-blind (neither physician nor participant knows the identity of the assigned treatment), parallel group (each participant group receives different treatments simultaneously), event driven (the study duration is determined by the time taken for a specific number of events to occur), multicenter study to assess the effectiveness and safety of rivaroxaban compared with placebo, in reducing the risk of death, myocardial infarction or stroke in participants with heart failure and significant coronary artery disease following an episode of decompensated heart failure. Participants will be randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio to receive either rivaroxaban or placebo (each in addition to standard of care for heart failure and coronary artery disease as prescribed by their managing physician). The study will consist of a screening phase, a double-blind treatment phase, and a follow-up after the sponsor-announced global treatment end date (GTED, defined as the date when 1200 primary efficacy outcome events are predicted to have occurred). The double-blind treatment phase is estimated to last for 6 to 54 months. Participants will discontinue study drug after taking both their morning and evening doses on the GTED and will return to the study center for the end-of-study visit (between 15 and 45 days but no sooner than 15 days after the GTED). Patient safety will be monitored throughout the study. The average study duration for participants is expected to be approximately 29 months. The study drug, rivaroxaban, is approved in the United States and in multiple countries around the world for the prevention and treatment of a number of thrombosis-mediated conditions.
