Venous thromboembolism (VTE), comprising deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), represents a significant medical and economic burden. Although, the launch of the NOACs signifies an important milestone for the treatment and secondary prophylaxis of VTE, there are still some areas of unmet need that remain underserved in this patient population. This report examines current treatment performance against treatment goals in the treatment and secondary prophylaxis of DVT and PE from the perspective of emergency room physicians and hematologists. This report also offers insight from these physicians on existing unmet needs for DVT and PE, while our target product profile conjoint simulator demonstrates how various attributes influence these physicians’ prescribing decisions.


  • What are the treatment drivers and goals for VTE?
  • What drug attributes are key influencers, which have limited impact, and which are hidden opportunities?
  • How do current therapies perform on key treatment drivers and goals for VTE?
  • What are the prevailing areas of unmet need and opportunity in VTE?
  • What trade-offs across different clinical attributes and price are acceptable to U.S. and European emergency room physicians and hematologists for a hypothetical new VTE drug?
