8:00am-8:15am- Introduction– Philip Sager, MD (Stanford University/Sager Consulting Experts)
8:15am-8:30am- Projecting to the future: Peter Kowey, MD (Lankenau) (15min)
Using PK/PD to inform NOAC reversal agent dosing: Should we consider pharmacometric-guided dosing of NOAC reversal agents to maximize the benefit: risk relationship?
– Post-marketing assessment of use in life-threatening bleeding situations will be critical for appropriate monitoring.
8:30am-10:15am Using Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters to inform NOAC dosing: Should we consider pharmacometric-guided dosing of NOAC agents to maximize the benefit: risk relationship?
Lead Discussant- Philip Sager, MD (Stanford University/Sager Consulting Experts)

10:15-10:30am Break (15min)

10:30am-12:45pm Defining the Data Elements for Safety and Effectiveness Monitoring of the NOAC Reversal Agents: For each perspective: What are examples of post marketing data you think are most appropriate to these types of products? What indications should be tracked and what information is needed for these indications? How strong does the level of evidence have to be to support safety? How strong to rule out inappropriate use?

12:45pm- 1:15pm- Lunch Break (30min)

1:15pm- 2:45pm Potential Data sources for Surveillance: What are the advantages and disadvantages of each type of data? Can they provide what is required from earlier sessions? Implementing an Effective Post-Approval Active Surveillance Strategy: How can we best achieve the goals for safety and effectiveness monitoring? What types of data sources are out there? What are the strengths and weaknesses? What are acceptable methodologies for surveillance? What are the success cases/failures? What are limitations?
