Bristol-Myers and Johnson & Johnson launch Phase 3 trial of milvexian
The Phase 3 Librexia study of milvexian, an investigational oral factor XIa-FXIa-inhibitor, will begin on March 2, 2023, according to a joint announcement from Bristol Myers Squibb and Johnson & Johnson. In three indication-seeking studies, the Librexia program—the largest FXIa development program to date—will collect data from close to 50,000 patients. The Librexia STROKE trial, which is evaluating milvexian in addition to standard antiplatelet therapy for stroke prevention in patients after an acute ischemic stroke or high-risk transient ischemic attack, has started accepting participants. Both the Librexia ACS and Librexia AF trials, which will compare milvexian to apixaban for the prevention of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation, will begin in the first half of 2023. The Librexia ACS trial will assess event reduction in acute coronary syndromes in addition to standard of care antiplatelet therapy. Milvexian’s phase 2 proof-of-concept data showed that it had a distinct antithrombotic profile when used both alone and in conjunction with antiplatelet therapy. Within the first half of 2023, enrollment in the Librexia ACS and Librexia AF trials is anticipated to begin.
