Call for collaborators: Comparisons between direct oral anticoagulants in atrial fibrillation (the CORAZON study)


Hi Everyone,

We’re looking for collaborators who have access to patient-level data and are interested in providing evidence on the effects of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) to the healthcare community.

The study aims to directly compare the effectiveness and safety outcomes between all DOACs (dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban, and edoxaban) in patients with atrial fibrillation using multi-national databases. The background of the study was presented in the OHDSI Collaborator Team Meeting in June where we’ve received your helpful feedback (thank you!): https://www.ohdsi.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/OHDSI-community-meeting_20200609_DOAC.pdf)

@CarmenOT and team have joined the study and have been kindly helping with this project. The study requirement and instructions on how to run the study can be found at https://github.com/ohdsi-studies/Corazon

Please send an email with title “corazon results” to Carmen O. Torre to notify you have dropped results in the folder or to send your “Result_.zip”.

Thank you and we hope you will join the study!

Hi Wallis, long time no see! I have been worked for Taipei Medical University (TMU) since Feb 2020. TMU has participated in IQVIA OHDSI, and currently we are transferring our 3 medical centers’ EMR system with around 3.6 million patients to OMOP CDM. I had some experience on DOACs research, and your proposal (CORAZON study) looks really great, and we are interested in join this study. Would you let me know how to involve in the study? Would you please also say Hi to Ian and Kenneth for me? Thanks a lot!


Hi Jason, nice to see you here! Hope you are doing well.
You will need to run the codes on your CDM v5 database and send us the results. We’ve provided the detailed guidance and instructions on how to get involved in this study in github https://github.com/ohdsi-studies/Corazon. Hope this is helpful. :slight_smile:
