FDA approves Eliquis label expansion

  • The FDA clears Eliquis (apixaban) for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) and for the reduction in the risk of recurrent DVT and PE following initial therapy.
  • This expands its label beyond its initial indication as a treatment to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
  • In 2007, Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Pfizer (PFE -0.3%) entered into a global collaboration to develop and commercialize apixaban, an oral anticoagulant discovered by BMY.
