  • *The AMPLIFY-EXT clinical trial was a 12 month, randomised, double-blind trial in 2,482 patients with VTE who had been treated for 6–12 months with standard anticoagulation therapy or had completed treatment with ELIQUIS or enoxaparin / warfarin as participants in the AMPLIFY trial and for whom there was clinical uncertainty about the benefit of continuing treatment.1

  • The primary safety endpoint was major bleeding.1 For patients who had more than one event, only the first was counted.1
