Medicine based on the evidence generated by randomized clinical trials is considered the gold standard in contemporary patient care. However, trials are not always the most appropriate or feasible way to address important open issues in thrombosis and hemostasis. These include the study of ´unusual´ inflammatory thrombotic diseases, long-term outcomes after venous thromboembolism (VTE), and anticoagulant-associated (bleeding) complications. In addition, new potential antithrombotic strategies and recently defined determinants of disease, such as the effects of diet and gut microbiota on thrombosis risk, are novel areas still poorly investigated and require clinical translation.
The Junior group Clinical and Early Translational Research in Venous Thromboembolism aims to expand the clinical research spectrum of the CTH and complement the Clinical Trial Professorship by setting up a working group able to host clinical research on acute VTE and anticoagulant treatment. The scientific goal of the group will be to focus on the pathophysiology and treatment of rare inflammatory (pro)thrombotic conditions as well as late VTE and anticoagulant-cassociated complications. Methodological aims will be the implementation of multistate modelling for more comprehensive time-to-event analyses and interventional studies in early clinical translation in humans adopting surrogate outcomes for confirming hypotheses generated in the CTH laboratory setting.
