e agency. Approval was delayed because the FDA asked for more data.

Drugs similar to apixaban include Xarelto (rivaroxaban) and Pradaxa (dabigatran etexilate), both of which have been approved by the FDA.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one-third of patients who have suffered venous thromboembolism have a recurrence within 10 years.

Another expert, Dr. Gregg Fonarow, a professor of cardiology at the University of California, Los Angeles, said that "after venous thromboembolism, it is recommended that patients be treated with anticoagulation therapy for six to 12 months. However, the benefits and risks of extended treatment with new oral anticoagulant agents are unclear. Given the highly favorable benefit/risk ratio, the extended treatment approach may represent an important therapeutic advance."
