TXA Central is a resource for health professionals caring for patients with acute severe bleeding
Watch, read and hear people’s stories below on how they were impacted by different kinds of bleeding, how TXA has helped and could continue to save lives, and their involvement in clinical trial research
The evidence provided on TXACentral came from over 70,000 men and women who suffered severe bleeding and agreed, or their families gave permission, to be part of a trial.
We thank them for their selfless contribution.
To improve the lives of patients requires the involvement of a multitude of people that ensure these clinical trials: ask the right questions, are designed and conducted to the highest standard, the outcomes are relevant to people, and the results benefit people everywhere.
Thousands of people including trialists, doctors, nurses, midwives, and administrators in over 50 countries worked together and completed these tranexamic acid (TXA) trials. Please see each trial website for the list of collaborators.
The trials were overseen by patient organisations, including:
