Boehringer didn’t share with the FDA an analysis showing a higher death rate from Pradaxa bleeding
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and now, can actively provide an expert opinion in view of the recent news on Pradaxa Side Effects and lawsuits.
Bloomberg reported on February 26 that, according to unsealed court filings, Boehringer didn’t share with the FDA an analysis showing a higher death rate from Pradaxa bleeding (MDL No. 2385, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois). Pradaxa, manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, is a new oral anticoagulant mainly used as a blood thinner for patients who are at risk for stroke or atrial fibrillation. According to Bloomberg, the company “didn’t disclose a data analysis to U.S. regulators that indicated the blood-thinner Pradaxa may have caused more fatal bleeding after it was cleared for sale than the drug did in a study used to win approval.”
As Reuters reported* on February 13, Boehringer faces more than 2,000 US lawsuits claiming that Pradaxa caused severe and fatal bleeding.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in cases of severe complications, allegedly from Pradaxa. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Pradaxa lawsuits. "For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
According to court documents, the next Status Conference in the Pradaxa Multidistrict Litigation is scheduled for March 5. In a recent Case Management Order issued on January 23, a US Judge defined the first four bellwether lawsuits in the Pradaxa Multidistrict Litigation that will go for trial.
AttorneyOne.com has further information on Pradaxa lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
