Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning a report on the blood thinner Pradaxa. When the drug was first approved in 2010 one of the major selling points was that frequent blood monitoring wasn't necessary. Replacing the drug Coumadin which had been on the market for decades but did require constant blood monitoring. Researchers found internal employee emails that indicated the maker of the drug Boehringer Ingelheim knew that frequent blood monitoring was needed to avoid serious bleeding problems. The company's own scientists said that blood monitoring was needed to identify patients that might have bleeding problems. This information was never given to the FDA when the drug was up for approval.
