AMPLIFY Clinical Trial

ELIQUIS demonstrated comparable efficacy with a significant reduction in the risk of major bleeding vs. enoxaparin / warfarin in the treatment of DVT / PE1

AMPLIFY-EXT Clinical Trial

ELIQUIS 2.5 mg BD demonstrated superior efficacy vs. placebo, with no statistically significant increase in the rates of both major and major / CRNM bleeding vs. placebo in patients receiving extended treatment for the prevention of recurrent DVT / PE2

CARAVAGGIO Clinical Trial

The CARAVAGGIO clinical trial investigated the efficacy and safety of ELIQUIS vs. dalteparin for the treatment of VTE in patients with cancer3

Treatment Guidelines

ELIQUIS is recommended by NICE as a treatment option for confirmed proximal DVT or PE3
