Clinical Trial Summary

Vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) are used to reduce the risk of stroke (cerebral vascular dysfunction) in AF patients. However, VKAs interact with drugs/food and the drug level is influenced by worsening of renal function, liver congestion or hemodynamic alterations in acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). New oral anticoagulants (rivaroxaban, apixaban, dabigatran) are alternatives to VKA, such as warfarin. In post hoc analysis of ROCKET AF trial, 63.7% patients had HF and treatment-related outcomes were similar in patients with and without HF (Circulation HF. 2013; 6:740-7). So rivaroxaban 20 mg daily (or 15 mg daily in patients with creatinine clearance 30-49 mL/min) was safe in nonvalvular AF patients with HF. However, the clinical effect and safety of rivaroxaban were largely unknown in acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) patients with atrial fibrillation (AF).

ROAD HF-AF is the exploratory study to assess the change of surrogate markers (hsTn, d-dimer) when treated with rivaroxaban vs. warfarin and to strengthen the basis for future biomarker-based therapy in ADHF patients
