A team of researchers compared abelacimab with enoxaparin as a control drug in 412 patients undergoing knee replacement surgery. Scientists found that one abelacimab injection prevents forming of blood clots for up to 1 month after surgery, decreasing the risk by approximately 80% compared with enoxaparin without increasing the risk of bleeding.

Lead researcher Jeffrey Weitz, a hematologist and a professor of medicine and of biochemistry and biomedical sciences at McMaster's Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, says: “This success of abelacimab in this study provides the foundation for its use for prevention of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation and for treatment of deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, clots in the veins of the leg and clots in the lung, in patients with cancer.”
