PONTE VEDRA, Fla., Jan. 31, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Cadrenal Therapeutics, Inc., (Nasdaq: CVKD), a biopharmaceutical company developing tecarfarin, a novel Vitamin K Antagonist (VKA) for unmet needs in anticoagulation (blood thinning) therapy, cited today a recent peer-reviewed article in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC) titled, “When Direct Oral Anticoagulants Should Not Be Standard Treatment” by Antoine Bejjani, MD, The article examines the numerous medical conditions where direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs), such as Eliquis, Xarelto, Pradaxa, and Savaysa, should not be prescribed.

Consistent with the evolving evidence documenting the need for VKA-based anticoagulant therapy, while simultaneously recognizing the deficiencies of the available VKA anticoagulants (such as warfarin), this latest peer-reviewed journal publication highlights:

  • For most patients, DOACs are preferred over existing Vitamin K Antagonists [warfarin] for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AFib) and venous thromboembolism treatment.
  • However, randomized controlled trials indicate that DOACs may not be as efficacious or as safe in conditions such as mechanical heart valves, thrombotic antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), and AFib associated with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD).
  • Their [DOACs] efficacy is uncertain for conditions such as left ventricular thrombus, and for patients with AFib or venous thrombosis who have ESKD.

“This expert review provides an assessment of the available evidence regarding DOACs, detailing not only when they have demonstrated efficacy and safety, but also when the DOACs have failed and therefore should not be the standard of care,” commented Quang Pham, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cadrenal Therapeutics. “These critical gaps in anticoagulation therapy, such as for patients with left ventricular assist devices (LVADs), thrombotic APS, and those with AFib and ESKD, highlight and support the need for the advancement of our tecarfarin development program to serve these patients.”

Cadrenal Therapeutics is developing tecarfarin for unmet needs in anticoagulation therapy. Tecarfarin is a late-stage novel oral and reversible anticoagulant (blood thinner) to prevent heart attacks, strokes, and deaths due to blood clots in patients with certain medical conditions. Tecarfarin has orphan drug and fast track designations from the FDA for the prevention of systemic thromboembolism (blood clots) of cardiac origin in patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) and atrial fibrillation (AFib). Cadrenal is also pursuing additional regulatory strategies for unmet needs in anticoagulation therapy for patients with left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) and those with thrombotic antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). Tecarfarin is specifically designed to leverage a different metabolism pathway than the oldest and most commonly prescribed Vitamin K Antagonist (warfarin). Tecarfarin has been evaluated in eleven (11) human clinical trials and more than 1,000 individuals. In Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 2/3 clinical trials, tecarfarin has generally been well-tolerated in both healthy adult subjects and patients with chronic kidney disease.
