Multi-district claims and litigation are now pending against Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals over safety concerns.
Allegations against the manufacturers of Xarelto include failure to adequately test the drug prior to releasing it for purchase, as well as concealing important safety information. Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals have been attempting to get Xarelto approved for use in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients, but the FDA has turned them down on three separate occasions. Xarelto generated sales of $1.3 billion last year and expects sales to reach $3.5 billion.
