Pradaxa was introduced by Boehringer Ingelheim in October 2010, and touted as a superior alternative to Coumadin (warfarin) for prevention of stroke among patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. In December 2011, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) released a safety communication warning patients of possible increased risk for bleeding events while taking Pradaxa. Like all blood thinners, Pradaxa poses a risk of serious internal bleeding. But unlike warfarin bleeding, which can be treated via the administration of vitamin k, there is no readily available antidote for Pradaxa hemorrhaging.

People allegedly injured by Pradaxa claim Boehringer Ingelheim failed to warn about an increased risk of excessive or uncontrollable bleeding with Pradaxa, and the lack of an effective reversal agent. As of August 17, court records indicate a total of 80 claims had been filed in the litigation. The MDL’s initial conference will be held on October 3, 2012, at 1:30 p.m. at the East St. Louis Courthouse in East St. Louis, Illinois.
