Another update from ASH
Nice booth showing this as well!
PRINCETON, N.J. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Bristol-Myers Squibb-Pfizer Alliance today announced results from retrospective real-world data analyses reporting outcomes on the safety and effectiveness of Eliquis® (apixaban) compared to low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) or warfarin for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with active cancer (n=14,086). The real-world data analyses were highlighted during oral presentations at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida. Results from the primary analysis showed that Eliquis use was associated with lower rates of major bleeding (MB) (hazard ratio [HR]: 0.63, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.47-0.86, p=0.003), clinically-relevant non-major (CRNM) bleeding (HR: 0.81, 95% CI: 0.70-0.94, p=0.006) and recurrent VTE (HR: 0.61, 95% CI: 0.47-0.81, p=0.001) compared to LMWH. Eliquis was also associated with a lower rate of recurrent VTE (HR: 0.68, 95% CI: 0.52-0.90, p=0.007) and similar rates of major bleeding (HR: 0.73, 95% CI: 0.53-1.0, p=0.051) and CRNM bleeding (HR: 0.89, 95% CI: 0.77-1.04, p=0.145) compared to warfarin. Outcomes were defined based on diagnosis codes and setting of care.
