Eliquis scores DVT/PE recommendation in Europe

Right now, Eliquis, the new-age clot-fighter from Pfizer and Bristol-Myers Squibb, is in third place in a three-horse race.

FDA finds Boehringer Ingelheim's Pradaxa safer than warfarin in most ways

Bristol-Myers is counting on DTC to keep driving Eliquis growth

Bristol-Myers Squibb says its Eliquis DTC campaign is doing its part to help get sales where the company wants them. Revenues for the anticoagulant may not be where many analysts expected they'd be when they talked the drug up as a future $3-billion-a-year blockbuster. But they are on the rise--thanks, in part, to the campaign, launched in September. And BMS says it's not stopping there.

Bristol-Myers impresses with trimmed-down costs, pumped-up sales
