Bayer believes that Xarelto (blood thinner) and Eylea (eye), which is developed by Regeneron (REGN), will hit peak revenues in 5-6 years. Bayer holds the license to sell Eylea outside the U.S.

Bayer has increased its combined peak annual sales forecast for its five most important drugs - Adempas (lung), Stivarga (cancer) and Xofigo (cancer), as well as Eylea and Xarelto - to at least €7.5B from a prior forecast of €5.5B. The treatments generated sales of €1.52B in 2013.
