Some 1155 patients with a DVT and cancer were randomly assigned apixaban or dalteparin low molecular weight heparin injections for six months. Respective rates of recurrent venous thromboembolism were similar: 5.6 versus 7.9 per cent, P<0.001 for non-inferiority. Bleeding complication rates were also similar.Pubmed Link
