PRINCETON, N.J. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE:BMY) and Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE) today announced results of a pre-specified secondary analysis of the Eliquis Phase 3 AMPLIFY-EXT trial (Apixaban after the initial Management of PuLmonary embolIsm and deep vein thrombosis with First-line therapY-EXTended Treatment).

This effect was independent of other variables including renal function, the only other significant predictor of hospitalization in the AMPLIFY-EXT population. These data were presented during an oral session today in Barcelona, Spain, at the ESC Congress 2014.
