New VOYAGER PAD Analysis Confirms Consistent Benefit of XARELTO ® (rivaroxaban) Plus Aspirin Following Lower Extremity Revascularization (LER)
TITUSVILLE, NJ, March 5, 2023 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced data from a new prespecified analysis from the Phase 3 VOYAGER PAD clinical trial reinforcing the benefits of the XARELTO® (rivaroxaban) vascular dose (2.5 mg twice daily plus aspirin 100 mg once daily) over standard of care (aspirin alone), demonstrating consistent benefit at 30 days, 90 days and up to three years following LER in patients with PAD. Lower extremity revascularization, also called peripheral revascularization, is a procedure that restores blood flow in blocked arteries or veins. This analysis of ...

Real-World Study Confirms Benefit of XARELTO ® (rivaroxaban) for Secondary Prevention of Venous Thromboembolism in Cancer Patients
TITUSVILLE, NJ, December 9, 2022 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced observational data from eight years of clinical practice showing that the oral Factor Xa inhibitor XARELTO® (rivaroxaban) is associated with comparable effectiveness and safety to the Factor Xa inhibitor apixaban for the treatment of cancer-associated thromboembolism (CAT) in a broad cohort of patients with various cancer types. Patients with CAT are at a higher risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE), which is the second-leading cause of death in people with cancer.1Data from the Observational Study in Cancer-A...

How Changing Your Diet Could Have a Major Impact on Managing Lupus Symptoms
After Jewell Singletary was diagnosed with lupus, she developed rheumatoid arthritis as well—a common pairing, since both are autoimmune conditions—and had to use a cane to navigate her college campus. When she graduated, the now 38-year-old New Jersey resident decided to be more focused on supporting her health, in an effort to maintain her mobility as she began her career. She started in the kitchen. First to be tossed were sugary drinks, fried foods, and highly processed options, she says. Once she eliminated them, it didn’t take long before she could discard one more important item: her cane. [time-br...

What are Potential Problems with Placental Abnormalities?
Discussion “The placenta is a unique organ that sits at the interface of, and facilitates nearly all interactions between, maternal and fetal physiology. It is the sole source of oxygen and nutrition for the fetus, and provides a protective barrier against external insults. The placenta is also a highly adaptable organ that is capable of showing a wide range of pathological changes in response to various maternal and fetal factors and stressors.” The placenta has 3 layers: the amnion (fetal side), the chorion, and decidua (maternal side). In addition to making observations about the maternal and fetal sides, co...

Chilblains: An Old But Now More Common Problem
Discussion Chilblains is also known as perniosis is an “…inflammatory dermatosis that generally affects the dorsal feet or hands during the periods of damp and cold, but not freezing, conditions…” It produces acryl lesions. Chilblains may be derived from the Old English words “chill” and “blegen” (sore). Pernio is thought be derivative of pern(a) or haunch of the leg as the feet and legs are commonly affected. Chilblain is usually idiopathic but has been associated with Raynaud disease, blood problems including cryofibrinogenemia and rheumatologic conditions such as systemic ...

New Data From Two Large Studies Reinforce Effectiveness of Dual Pathway Inhibition (DPI) with XARELTO ® (rivaroxaban) Plus Aspirin in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and/or Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
RARITAN, N.J., May 23, 2022 – Findings from the XARELTO® (rivaroxaban) Phase 3 COMPASS Long-Term Open Label Extension (LTOLE) study and the XARELTO® in Combination with Acetylsalicylic Acid (XATOA) registry have been published in the European Society of Cardiology’s (ESC) European Heart Journal, Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy. Additionally, the XATOA registry was presented at the American Congress of Cardiology’s 71st Annual Scientific Session (ACC.22). These studies provide further evidence supporting the role of dual pathway inhibition (DPI) with the XARELTO® vascular dose (2.5 mg twice daily plus aspirin 100 mg...

Antibody-Activated Endothelial Cells Increase the Risk of Blood Clots with Covid-19
Antiphospholipid antibodies activity may help explain hypercoagulation associated with late stages of Covid-19 and long-haul disease. Blood samples from nearly 250 individuals hospitalized for Covid-19 found that these “rouge” antibodies activate endothelial cells, risking widespread blood clots.
