Thrombosis

Living with thrombosis

Bayer is making thrombosis treatment easier and more comfortable.

More than 700,000 people undergo anticoagulant treatment every year to prevent or treat thrombosis in Europe alone. Bayer is developing a new active substance that will make it easier for these people to dose and take their medication. The traditional need for regular injections and meticulous monitoring of blood values to get the dose right is removed.

Easy dose and administration

The new substance is easily dosed and administered once daily in tablet form. The substance inhibits the clotting (coagulant) factor Xa in the blood not only to prevent thrombosis, but also to help treat existing blood clots.

The solution is being tested in an extensive clinical study program including almost 100,000 patients.

So far, solutions has been approved for:

  • prevention of thrombosis following major orthopedic surgery.
  • treatment of existing blood clots in deep leg veins.
  • prevention of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation.
  • treatment of pulmonary embolism
  • prevention of recurring venous thrombosis.

You can prevent thrombosis

Thrombosis can be prevented. People who are aware that they are at risk can take precautions.

  • Low-impact exercises increase the blood circulation and are recommended after surgery or when travelling.
  • Compression stockings improve the blood circulation in people who have to lie down for long periods or sit for many hours during long-haul flights.
  • There are also drugs that can reduce the risk of undesired blood clotting.
