Eliquis and Basal ganglia infarction - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data


Basal ganglia infarction is reported only by a few people who take Eliquis.

The phase IV clinical study analyzes which people take Eliquis and have Basal ganglia infarction. It is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 142,078 people who have side effects while taking Eliquis from the FDA, and is updated regularly.

Phase IV trials are used to detect adverse drug outcomes and monitor drug effectiveness in the real world. With medical big data and AI algorithms, eHealthMe is running millions of phase IV trials and makes the results available to the public. Our original studies have been referenced on 600+ medical publications including The Lancet, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and Nature.
