Recently the US Food and Drug Administration has decline the approval of Portola Pharmaceuticals’ (NASDAQ: PTLA) anticoagulant antidote product for uncontrolled bleeding linked to blood thinners including Xarelto (rivaroxaban) and Eliquis (apixaban). Xarelto associated with severe adverse events include internal bleeding, fatal brain and stomach bleeds. There is allegedly no antidote to stop uncontrolled bleeding, which can lead Xarelto to cause someone to bleed to death. In addition, important information about the lack of an antidote was buried within the prescribing information. Plaintiffs alleges that manufacturers withheld information about the lack of an antidote along with the prescribing information and they claims that if the company had warned of the risks, then patients would have been prescribed the drug warfarin, a medication in which internal bleeding can be treated with dosages of Vitamin K.
