* The ARISTOTLE clinical trial was a randomised, double-blind, double-dummy non-inferiority trial in 18,201 patients. Stroke / systemic embolism was the primary efficacy endpoint and major bleeding was the primary safety endpoint. The primary safety outcome was major bleeding, according to the criteria of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH). Pre-specified hierarchical sequential testing was performed first on stroke / systemic embolism (primary efficacy endpoint) for non-inferiority, then for superiority, then on major bleeding and, finally, on death from any cause (secondary endpoint).2
