Xarelto® Manufacturers Accused of Misleading Medical Journal

by Staff Blogger | March 9th, 2016

Pharmaceutical companies makes billions each year from the medications they manufacture. When these drugs operate as intended, the results can be lifesaving. However, when unintended side effects cause more harm than good, the manufacturer has a responsibility to warn the public and pull the drug from the shelves. Unfortunately, some manufacturers choose to do the opposite, concealing the risks in the interests of profits.

Recently, the The New York Times reported that Johnson & Johnson and Bayer, manufacturers of the blood-thinning medication Xarelto®, potentially mislead the editors of a prestigious medical journal by failing to provide important data that may have impacted the results of their study. Some believe the manufacturers concealed this information to ensure doctors continue to prescribe the drug even though doing so may put their patients at risk.

Xarelto has been linked to an increased risk of severe bleeding, stroke, and blood clots in certain patients, which can lead to serious injury or death.
