* ELIQUIS® (apixaban): an oral, direct factor Xa inhibitor indicated for:

- Prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in adult patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF), with one or more risk factors, such as prior stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA); age ≥75 years; hypertension; diabetes mellitus; symptomatic heart failure (New York Heart Association Class ≥II)1
- Treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), and prevention of recurrent DVT and PE in adults1
- Prevention of venous thromboembolic events (VTE) in adult patients who have undergone elective hip or knee replacement surgery1

Not all patients who start on ELIQUIS for acute DVT / PE will stay on ELIQUIS; some acute DVT / PE patients who receive treatment do not require treatment for the prevention of recurrent DVT / PE. Other patients may be prescribed ELIQUIS for the prevention of recurrent VTE after initial treatment for acute DVT / PE with another anticoagulant.1 This is a decision for the prescribing clinician together with patient involvement in the decision-making.
