Pradaxa Bleeding Lawsuits Help: Resource4thePeople Reports another Medical Research Study Finds Increased Bleeding Risks
Date:9/14/2013

al Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis.****

Physicians attending the congress in The Netherlands were told that a study that involved over 23,000 patients showed that those taking Pradaxa (dabigaltran etexilate) as a blood thinner were up to 45% more likely to suffer a heart attack than other patients.

Here was the conclusion of the study as presented to the congress:

“This meta-analysis of RCTs (randomized control trials) provides robust evidence that DE (dabigaltran etexilate) is associated with a significantly increased risk of MI (myrocardial infarction), especially at high dose (150mg bid). No firm conclusion can be taken with the lower DE dose (110mg bid) because of the limited number of studies included in this meta-analysis.

“Health care professionals and regulators should consider appropriate strategy to prevent such serious adverse drug reactions. The limitation of the use of DE in patients at high risk or suffering from coronary heart disease, the concomitant use of aspirin or switching to a FXa inhibitor should be carefully considered.”

Resource4thePeople notes that this finding comes just several months after the FDA issued a Drug Safety Communication warning Dec. 19, 2012 that the medication should not be used in patients with mechanical prosthetic heart valves.****

Here is a part of that warning:

“The FDA issued a Drug Safety Communication informing healthcare professionals and the public that the anticoagulant Pradaxa should not be used to prevent stroke or blood clots in patients with mechanical heart valves.

“The RE-ALIGN clinical trial in Europe was recently stopped because Pradaxa users were more likely to experience strokes, heart attacks, and blood clots forming on the mechanical heart valves than were users of the anticoagulant warfarin. There was also more bleeding after valve surgery in the Pradaxa users than in warfarin users.”
