Skewed trial data hid the risk of uncontrollable bleeding
Brilinta is a medication that keeps blood platelets from clotting to prevent unwanted blood clots that can occur with certain heart or blood vessel conditions. This medication lowers the risk of stroke or serious heart problems after a patient has had a heart attack.
Facts about Brilinta
Brilinta manufacturer, AstraZeneca is accused of omitting adverse events such as uncontrollable bleeding from initial trial submission to the FDA. It was discovered that at least 23 instances of people experiencing side effects were left out of the results, and the manufacturer downgraded many adverse events to a lesser side effect.
There isn’t even an antidote for the uncontrollable bleeding. Emergency personnel does not have any options when needing to swiftly reverse the effects of Brilinta. They have to wait for the effects of it to wear off, while their patients continue to bleed.
