Effectiveness of Xarelto Clinical Trials Called into Question
The reliability of premarket clinical trials of the anti-clotting medication Xarelto has come into question and might be a decisive issue when lawsuits involving this drug are heard in 2017. The Pennsylvania Record reports that more than 800 people have filed claims in which they allege that they suffered severe bleeding events as a result of taking Xarelto. Now, the attorneys representing these individuals are questioning the accuracy and thoroughness of the clinical trials that supported Xarelto’s approval.
Some of these trials exhibited significant deficits, while others pointed to conclusions that the makers of Xarelto allegedly ignored. For example, one trial suffered from a lack of adequate data, statistically significant indications of efficacy or corroborating external evidence. Two other trials suggested the once-daily doses that distinguished Xarelto from traditional anticoagulants could put patients at risk by causing fluctuations in blood plasma levels. Allegedly, these variations could raise the risk of low doses proving inefficient and high doses causing adverse bleeding events. Unfortunately, despite these findings, the defendants chose to sell and market Xarelto as a safe, once-daily alternative to established anticoagulants.
