HALT-IT trial (haemorrhage alleviation with tranexamic acid-intestinal system), a large randomised placebo controlled trial among patients with acute gastrointestinal haemorrhage of the effects of tranexamic acid on death and transfusion requirement

About 50,000 people a year enter hospital because of severe stomach bleeding, and some 5,000 of them die. Tranexamic acid reduces the chances of accident victims bleeding to death. We will explore if tranexamic acid saves and improves the quality of life of patients in a study involving 8,000 people. If it does, lives could be saved at low cost by avoiding blood transfusions or operations.
