Dr Harry Büller - University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Dr Büller speaks with ecancer at the 2017 ASH annual meeting about a randomised, open-label, blinded outcome assessment trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of LMWH/edoxaban versus dalteparin for venous thromboembolism associated with cancer. 

He details the balance of disease recurrence and bleeding in trial groups, noting the improved treatment adherence among those taking a daily pill in place of subcutaneous injection, and the planned sensitivity assessments for the trial.

Overall, Dr Büller describes these results as practice-changing, and encourages doctors and patients to consider their use.
