St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 27, 2014
According to a recent lawsuit filed in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas (Stuntebeck v. Janssen Research & Development LLC et al, Case No.140201754), the anticoagulant drug Xarelto® (rivaroxaban) is alleged to cause serious and uncontrolled internal bleeding that might be irreversible, that could result in life-threatening injuries and even death.
The anti-clotting medication Xarelto®, which is marketed by Johnson & Johnson in the United States and by Bayer outside the United States, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July 2011 for use in patients who recently underwent hip or knee replacement surgery to reduce the risk of blood clots. According to a press release issued by the FDA, in November 2011 the FDA approved another indication of Xarelto® for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) to reduce the risk of stroke. Then in 2012, according to a press release issued by the FDA, the FDA approved another indication of Xarelto® expanding its use for the general treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE).
“We will fight for the rights of individuals who allege to have experienced serious and life-threatening injuries after using Xarelto®,” says Roger Denton of Schlichter, Bogard & Denton, LLP. He adds, "The attorneys at Schlichter, Bogard & Denton, LLP are offering free and confidential case reviews to those who allege to have been injured after using Xarelto®."
