INGELHEIM, GERMANY--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire) October 15, 2018 -- Boehringer Ingelheim today announced that primary results from two key trials, RE-SPECT ESUS® and RE-SPECT CVT®, will be presented at the upcoming World Stroke Congress in Montreal, Canada 17-20 October 2018. These primary analyses will contribute to the scientific community’s understanding of both disease states and the clinical profile of dabigatran etexilate (Pradaxa®).

The results from RE-SPECT ESUS, the first randomised trial comparing dabigatran etexilate with acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) in any indication, will add further insight into the prevention of secondary stroke in patients with an embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS).1 As the first comparison to ASA, this trial will also offer further important insights into the clinical profile of dabigatran etexilate.

RE-SPECT CVT will provide additional knowledge regarding treatment of patients with cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT).2 It is the first exploratory, prospective, randomised controlled study of any non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant (NOAC) in patients with blood clots in the veins or venous sinuses of the brain.

Both trials are part of Boehringer Ingelheim’s ongoing commitment to expanding scientific knowledge of stroke prevention and form part of the extensive RE-VOLUTION® clinical trial programme for dabigatran etexilate, which upon completion will have enrolled more than 60,000 patients worldwide.1-14

The results from these two trials will be presented in the following sessions:
