New Drug May Be Able to Reverse Xarelto’s Side Effects

Xarelto is one of the newest blood thinners on the market. It is prescribed to treat patients who are at risk of developing blood clots. However, Xarelto has recently received negative feedback from the pharmaceutical world because of its various side effects, the most common and most negative of them being an increased risk of internal bleeding. Patients who have brought civil lawsuits against the manufacturers, Bayer and Johnson & Johnson, allege that they failed to inform the doctors, patients, and the FDA of the serious side effects and issues.

As of the beginning of January, Portola Pharmaceuticals released information of an experimental drug, called andexanet alfa, which may be able to immediately reverse the anticoagulation activity that can occur in patients taking Xarelto. The development of this antidote has the opportunity to provide vital treatment options for patients who experience major bleeding or require emergency surgery. It’s currently in a late-stage study.
