Date:12/6/2009

essor of Medicine, Thrombosis Service, McMaster Clinic and Hamilton General Hospital in Ontario, Canada. "This study found that dabigatran is a safe and effective anticoagulant that does not require the routine monitoring or dose adjustments that are necessary with warfarin. In other words, patients can receive the same results in a more convenient manner."
