Venous Thromboembolism – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis- Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis (US)

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is the obstruction of a vein caused by a thrombus. It consists of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), depending on the vein affected. Current therapies include treatment and secondary prophylaxis with anticoagulants as well as acute treatment with thrombolytics in the case of severe events such as PE. Among all anticoagulant drugs, novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have gained popularity in recent years and become drivers of market growth. Nonetheless, low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWHs) are still widely prescribed. This analysis of claims data provides a quantitative picture of prescribing patterns for newly diagnosed and recently drug-treated VTE patients in the United States. .


  • What patient shares do key therapies and brands garner by line of therapy in newly diagnosed VTE? What are the quarterly trends in prescribing among recently treated and newly diagnosed VTE patients?
  • How have NOACs been integrated into the treatment algorithm, and what is their source of business?
  • What percentage of VTE patients receive drug therapy within 365 days of diagnosis, and how quickly? What percentage of patients progress to later lines of therapy within 365 days of diagnosis?
  • What percentage of VTE patients are treated with monotherapy versus combination therapy? What are the most commonly used combinations?
  • What are the product-level compliance and persistency rates among drug-treated patients?
