Dr Alok Khorana - Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, USA

Dr Alok Khorana speaks to ecancer at ASH 2018 about results from the CASSINI trial.

He explains that for the trial a risk assessment score was designed to look at thrombotic events in cancer patients and high risk patients were tested to see if rivaroxaban reduced the risk without increasing the risk of bleeding.

Dr Khorana states that rivaroxaban can be taken by patients with a high risk with bleeding incidents recorded to be low.
