Real-World Data Program Grows to Sample Size of Nearly One Million Lives Worldwide

The FINANCIAL -- The Bristol-Myers Squibb-Pfizer Alliance will present 15 Eliquis posters at the ESC Congress 2018 held in Munich, Germany, August 25-29, 2018. Nine of the posters to be presented are new analyses from the global real-world data (RWD) program, ACROPOLIS (Apixaban ExperienCe Through Real-WOrld POpuLatIon Studies), exploring the effectiveness and safety of anticoagulants, including Eliquis, among patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. These data add to the growing body of real-world evidence for Eliquis, which now includes a sample size of more than 970,000 lives.

The analyses that will be presented at the ESC Congress 2018 as part of ACROPOLIS will offer new insights on patients who have non-valvular atrial fibrillation and a range of comorbidities. The analyses explore other important topics such as healthcare costs, including hospitalization due to bleeding.

 

The ACROPOLIS program provides a robust source of complementary information to healthcare professionals. The source and type of RWD may limit how results and endpoints can be applied to the overall patient population. RWD are not to be used as stand-alone evidence for healthcare decision making.
