Current Environment:

Summary

The trial objective is to demonstrate the safety of idarucizumab, as assessed by the occurence of patients with drug related adverse events (including immune reactions) and all-cause mortality in paediatric venous thromboembolism patients treated with dabigatran in ongoing clinical trials who require emergency surgery/urgent procedures or patients who have life-threatening or uncontrolled bleeding which requires urgent intervention, when rapid reversal of the anticoagulant effect of dabigatran is needed.

Inclusion criteria:

Patients taking dabigatran etexilate in the paediatric trials 1160.106 or 1160.108 are eligible for this trial if they meet the following criteria:

Group A:

Overt bleeding judged by the treating physician to require a reversal agent.
Currently taking dabigatran etexilate in the context of a clinical trial with dabigatran etexilate (1160.106 or 1160.108).
Male or female patients from 0 to less than 18 years of age at the time of informed consent/assent for participation in trial 1160.106 or in trial 1160.108.

If the child is unable to give assent at the time of the emergency, the assent, when applicable will be obtained as soon as feasible.

Group B:

A condition requiring an emergency surgery or invasive procedure where adequate haemostasis is required. Emergency is defined as need for surgery or intervention within the following 8 hours.
Currently taking dabigatran etexilate in the context of a clinical trial with dabigatran etexilate (1160.106 or 1160.108).
Male or female patients from 0 to less than 18 years of age at the time of informed consent/assent for participation in trial 1160.106 or in trial 1160.108.
