Apixaban is a Food and Drug Administrator (FDA) approved anticoagulant used for the treatment of venous thromboembolic events (blood clot) that forms within a vein. Venous thromboembolic events (VTE) can occur without any prior symptoms or warning signs and can go undiagnosed and unrecognized by a healthcare professional. Symptoms that do appear may be associated with pulmonary embolism (PE) or either deep vein thrombosis (DVT) such as pain in the calf, swelling in the ankle or foot, redness or noticeable discoloration spots, rapid breathing, chest pain, and others. Apixaban is sold under the trade-name of Eliquis. Factor Xa is a trypsin-like serine protease that plays a key role in blood coagulation cascade. Apixaban mechanism works on inhibiting factor Xa, which indirectly decreases the clot formation stimulated by thrombin. Apixaban is indicated to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. The recommended dose of Eliquis is 5mg orally twice a day. Apixaban is available in the market as capsules and tablet form.
