Baird 2011 Healthcare Conference
FDA advisory panel meeting to review Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ) Xarelto for the prevention of strokes and blood clots in patients with atrial fibrillation.
FDA advisory panel meeting to review the benefits and risks of long-term use of bisphosphonates to treat osteoporosis in light of safety concerns related to jawbone death and unusual thigh-bone fractures.
