Open to people ages up to 17 years

  1. Birth to <18 years of age with a minimum weight of 2.6 kg at the time of randomization.
  2. Presence of an index VTE which is confirmed by imaging.
  3. Intention to manage the index VTE with anticoagulation treatment for at least 6 to 12 weeks.
  4. Subjects able to tolerate oral feeding, nasogastric (NG), gastric (G) feeding and are currently tolerating enteric medications, as per investigator's judgement.

You CAN'T join if...

  1. Anticoagulant treatment for the index VTE for greater than 14 days prior to randomization. Neonates that are enrolled into the PK cohort must be on a minimum of 5 days and a maximum of 14 days SOC anticoagulation prior to randomization. Neonates that are enrolled into the post PK cohort may receive SOC anticoagulation for up to 14 days prior to randomization.
  2. Thrombectomy, thrombolytic therapy, or insertion of a caval filter to treat the index VTE.
  3. A mechanical heart valve.
  4. Active bleeding or high risk of bleeding at the time of randomization.
  5. Intracranial bleed, including intraventricular hemorrhage, within 3 months prior to randomization.
  6. Abnormal baseline liver function at randomization.
  7. Inadequate renal function at the time of randomization.
  8. Platelet count <50×109 per L at randomization.
  9. Uncontrolled severe hypertension at the time of randomization.
  10. Use of prohibited concomitant medication at the time of randomization.
  11. Female subjects who are either pregnant or breastfeeding a child.
  12. Use of aggressive life-saving therapies such as ventricular assist devices (VAD) or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) at the time of enrollment.
  13. Unable to take oral or enteric medication via the NG or G tube.
  14. Known inherited or acquired antiphospholipid syndrome (APS).
  15. Known inherited bleeding disorder or coagulopathy with increased bleeding risk (eg, hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, etc.)
