ED0157: Phase 1 Pediatric PK/PD Study

About this study

Edoxaban is an investigational medicine that may reduce blood clots, however, it is considered experimental because it is still being studied and has not yet been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Researchers want to understand more about how the body processes and responds to Edoxaban and they would like to measure that by examining blood samples provided by study participants. In this study all participants will receive a one-time dose of the medication, and they will be divided into groups according to age and how much or how little drug they receive. Each participant will be in the study for 2-4 weeks and will have up to 3 visits (screening, Check-In, Follow up) to the study clinic.

  • Participant has completed their standard anticoagulant therapy.
  • Participant is not receiving active therapy for a malignant condition.
