Venous thromboembolism (VTE) encompasses deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). It is the third most frequent cardiovascular disease with an overall annual incidence of 100–200 per 100 000 inhabitants. VTE may be lethal in the acute phase or lead to chronic disease and disability, but it is also often preventable. This study aims to assess the precision and accuracy of the LumiraDx point of Care (POC) D Dimer test when used in patients presenting with symptoms of VTE which can deliver a quantitative result in under 10 minutes from a finger stick blood sample. Current tests require venous blood samples or are laboratory tests that take 30-60+ minutes to return a result to the attending clinician.
Primary Objective: To determine the performance of the LumiraDx POC D Dimer assay when compared to the VIDAS D-Dimer Exclusion reference method in patients with suspected VTE.
Sample: Patients presenting to the Emergency department with symptoms of deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.
Trial design: Prospective observational (cohort) Performance evaluation study
Target – 100 (TBC)

EHA - Epidemiological analysis for the Hereditary Angioedema Disease is an international, multicentre, epidemiological study that aims to explore the feasibility of a new Dried Blood Spot (DBS) filtercard-based screening algorithm and thereby the prevalence of the Hereditary Angioedema.
