Pradaxa

In October 2010, the FDA approved Pradaxa®, an oral anti-coagulate used to treat patients with atrial fibrillation. Pradaxa® is associated with increased gastrointestinal bleeding despite the overall lower rates of bleeding at other sites. A trend of higher bleeding risk was seen with advancing age. This risk was under-estimated in clinical trials giving rise to suspicions that the Phase III test results were not adequately reported, and that the warning concerning the impact of gastrointestinal bleeds was diluted. There is no antidote for patients who begin to bleed while on Pradaxa.
