Authors: Kohsaka S, Katada J, Saito K, Terayama Y Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate the risk of bleeding events and stroke/systemic embolism (SE) among Japanese patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF), focusing on the initial dosage of apixaban and patient age. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study used de-identified electronic health records-based claims data from 314 acute-care hospitals in Japan. NVAF patients newly initiated on warfarin or apixaban, with no prescription during the 180-day blanking period, were eligible. Patients were allocated to receive warfarin or 5 or 2.5 mg twice...
