Hi All,

According to Apixaban PIL its kinetics has some peculiarities::lookaround:

1) AUC is 32% higher in patients aged over 65
2) AUC is 18% higher in women
3) AUC is 30% higher in patients with body weight below 50 kilos.

Will it be correct to say (using extrapolation) that if a slim woman aged 70 takes 2.5 mg of apixaban the "actual dose" is close to 5.0 mg? :confused:

From the point of safety the question is important :wink:
