NICE is asking Bayer for more information about its blood thinner Xarelto in new guidance. 

The watchdog is currently minded not to recommend Xarelto (rivaroxaban) for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and preventing recurrent DVT and pulmonary embolism (PE), following an acute DVT.

NICE said Bayer will need to provide further evidence relating to Xarelto’s clinical and cost effectiveness, specially relating to its long-term efficacy.
