Eli Lilly Pulling the Plug on Blood Thinning Drug Prasugrel

Comments Off

Until Eli Lilly abruptly pulled patients off of prasugrel, the blood thinning drug had been one of the more promising drugs for the large pharmaceutical company. A. Michael Lincoff, director of cardiovascular research at the Cleveland Clinic, was quoted in the Wall St. Journal as stating that in all likelihood the drug trial was suspended for safety reasons with bleeding the most likely safety factor. Lilly still plans to submit prasugrel to the FDA for approval by the end of this year.
