Posted on January 21, 2012 the medical comments are impressive and Florida lawyers are taking notice and accepting cases for injuries from Pradaxa. Pradaxa lawyers are accepting cases from victims of Pradaxa.
Pradaxa is part of a new group of anticoagulants (thrombin X inhibitors) that eventually will allow anticoagulation by the pill route without requiring patients to alter their food and medication intake and avoid foods and medications that interfere with the anticoagulant as patients must do with Warfarin. Pradaxa additionally eliminates the need to take blood tests (INR/ PT) to monitor the dosage as one has to do with Warfarin (Coumadin).
There is a large commercial advertising campaign underway on TV and print media to encourage patients with atrial fibrillation to ask their doctors to switch them from Coumadin to Pradaxa (Dabigatrin). Pradaxa lawyers are also advertising extensively regarding the dangers of pradaxa and offering a Pradaxa lawyer, The campaign bases its claims on the RE-LY trial of 18,000 patients at 80 medical centers throughout the world who took the 150 mg dosage and had significantly fewer strokes than patients taking Warfarin. The original study was criticized because many of the patients in the Warfarin (Coumadin) group were not on enough Warfarin or at a therapeutic PT/INR to prevent embolic strokes so the comparison with Pradaxa may not be valid. Another criticism involved the fact that Pradaxa can cause major bleeding and there is no antidote to stop the bleeding. Patients on Pradaxa who are bleeding are advised to undergo hemodialysis to remove the drug from their system because there are no medications or treatments available to stop Pradaxa related bleeding.
One wonders how the Food and Drug Administration approved this product for general use under these circumstances without conducting further testing? Pradaxa lawyers seem to believe these pradaxa complications and deaths are worthey of legal action and offering victims the opportunity to get a pradaxa lawyer and pursue a claim. The issue becomes even more confusing with the addition of data presented by Ken Uchino, MD, and Adrian Hernandez MD, PhD of the Cleveland Clinic in the online version of the Archives of Internal Medicine. They claim that by reviewing the RE-LY data there is a 38% relative increase in the risk of a myocardial infarction (MI) or heart attack in the Pradaxa group. In an accompanying editorial in the same journal, clinicians at the Hadassah- Hebrew University Medical Center in Jerusalem wrote, “The robust finding that Dabigatran is associated with increased rates of MI (heart attack) is alarming and emphasizes the need for continued critical appraisal of new drugs after phase III trials.”
Thrombin X inhibitors are the wave of the future. With no way to stop the bleeding, and data on their safety and efficacy still accumulating, they are just not ready for prime time yet.
