Report: Xarelto Clinical Trial Results May Need Further Scrutiny
The clinical trials that supported the approval of the anticoagulant Xarelto have been called into question by reports that the blood-testing device used during these trials was allegedly faulty. As CBS News explains, the device may have incorrectly made Xarelto appear more safe and effective than the popular blood-thinner warfarin. Given reports linking Xarelto to serious or even fatal bleeding events, critics have worried that the drug was wrongly approved based on flawed trial data.
Johnson & Johnson and Bayer, the makers of Xarelto, commissioned a review of the clinical safety trials, which found that the faulty device didn’t affect the final results. However, attorneys representing patients who were allegedly injured by Xarelto have contended that this analysis didn’t take all available data into account. Furthermore, peer reviewers and editors at the New England Journal of Medicine, which published the review of the trials, weren’t advised that additional data was available. Critics have expressed concerns that this omission may have rendered the analysis inaccurate and that the trial results may require further scrutiny, the website reported.
How a Michigan Xarelto Lawyer Can Help
Drug manufacturers have a duty to ensure their products are accompanied by full and accurate instructions and warnings to guide prescribing doctors and other health care providers in making treatment decisions. If a drug maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
Patients who are injured by Xarelto may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:
- Medical expenses
- The permanency of the injury
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Loss of income or ability to work
If a patient dies from complications after taking Xarelto, family members may be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one, including:
- Conscious pain and suffering of a loved one prior to death
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish from the loss of a loved one
- Funeral expenses
Patients who have suffered severe side effects after taking Xarelto, as well as the families of those who have died as a result of complications with the drug, are encouraged to seek the advice of a Michigan Xarelto lawyer to learn more about their rights and remedies.
