Report: Blood Testing Device Used in Xarelto Trials May Have Been Faulty

The pharmaceutical companies responsible for developing the blood-thinning medication Xarelto, Johnson & Johnson and Bayer, may have concealed key data from trials of the drug during an investigation of those trials, according to a federal legal briefing. The trials, which compared Xarelto to the widely used anticoagulant warfarin, utilized data collected with a blood-testing device that eventually was recalled and may have produced misleading results, as businessinsider.com reports. After conducting a review to assess the validity of the trial results, the makers of Xarelto may have prevented an accurate third-party evaluation of the findings by withholding data from a peer reviewer.

The review ultimately found that the use of the faulty blood-testing device did not significantly affect the outcome of the trials. However, litigation involving Xarelto, which includes over 5,000 lawsuits and 500 claims of wrongful death, suggests that these trials might not have accurately represented the risks and efficacy of the blood-thinning agent. Furthermore, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is still in the process of investigating whether flawed data during the trials may have led to the inappropriate approval of Xarelto, the website reported.
