Medical Information and Pharmacovigilance

Content :


Sanofi is dedicated to increasing awareness around thrombosis and supplies effective medication which is indicated for both prevention and treatment of VTE’s (venous thromboembolism).

THROMBOSIS is a blood clot that forms in your artery or vein and is the one disorder that causes the world’s top three cardiovascular killers: heart attack, stroke and venous thromboembolism (VTE) - a blood clot that is found mostly in the leg and lungs.
If not prevented or caught early, a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can progress, with the blood clot breaking away and traveling to your lungs and becoming a potentially deadly pulmonary embolism (PE), which requires immediate medical attention. Together, DVT and PE are known as venous thromboembolism (VTE).
