Xarelto Causing Liver Cancer Lawsuits
A 2014 JAMA study found that treatment with Xarelto’s key ingredient, Rivaroxaban, can result in severe drug-induced liver injury. The symptomatic liver damage was so severe that JAMA Internal Medicine recommended a rapid discontinuation of treatment with Xarelto and any re-exposure to the drug.
The report focused on two patient case studies. One of the patients suffered from acute liver failure within 2 months of beginning Xarelto treatment. Both patients recovered 14 days after they stopped receiving Xarelto treatment and so the authors of the study speculate that Xarelto’s main ingredient, Rivaroxaban, was the main cause of the liver injury.
While 90% of individuals will recover from acute failure, if it is not caught in a timely fashion, death or chronic issues are a possibility.
What are the Criteria for Filing a Xarelto Lawsuit?
Lawsuits filed against Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bayer Corp. over the blood thinner Xarelto have been consolidated in Louisiana federal court. Xarelto has been linked to serious side effects including internal bleeding, gastrointestinal bleeding, brain bleed and death.
The Xarelto lawsuits come on the heels of the recent $650 million Pradaxa settlement. Researchers linked Pradaxa, also a blood thinning medication, to more than 500 deaths.
Xarelto blood thinner litigation has been consolidated before U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon in the Eastern District of Louisiana, who presided over suits against Merck & Co. over its medication Vioxx. The Vioxx litigation resulted in a $4.85 billion settlement in 2007.
In order to file a Xarelto lawsuit, the patient must have suffered serious hemorrhage, internal bleeding, or death as a result of blood being unable to clot due to the drug.
