Pradaxa Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comments on Study Findings Regarding Use of Pradaxa in Mechanical Heart Valve Patients
Date:9/8/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 08, 2013

As Pradaxa lawsuit (http://www.pradaxalawsuithelp.com/) claims continue to move forward in courts around the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that a newly-published study has reported that Pradaxa is no safer or effective than warfarin when used to treat people with mechanical heart valves. The study, called RE-ALIGN, was halted early after it became apparent that Pradaxa patients were more likely to suffer thromboembolic events, including strokes, heart attacks and blood clots, as well as internal bleeding, compared to those treated with warfarin, a blood thinner that has been on the market for decades. The study appears in the September 1, 2013 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.*

“It’s disturbing to note that this study had to be halted early because of the high rates of Pradaxa side effects, including internal bleeding. This research is just another reminder that the risks and benefits of Pradaxa need to be more fully evaluated,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Pradaxa lawsuit evaluations to patients who suffered serious internal bleeding while using this blood thinner.

Pradaxa, which is used to prevent strokes in people with a heart-rhythm disorder known as atrial fibrillation, was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in October 2010. In December, shortly after the RE-ALIGN trial was halted, the FDA announced that a new contraindication was being added to the Pradaxa label to warn against its use in patients with mechanical heart valves.
