Novartis’ Revolade proved effective for seniors

"Novartis Korea said Tuesday additional data analysis from its EXTEND clinical trial for Revolade (ingredient: eltrombopag) proved it safe and effective for those 65 years and older with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP).

The sub-set study findings were presented at the first International Congress of BMT symposium held in Seoul on Aug. 26.
