It’s assumed that patients and cardiologists alike will love the new Coumadin alternative, Pradaxa.  On Monday, we’ll get to hear more about the drug and cardiologists’ reactions to it.

The American Heart Association‘s Scientific Sessions will surely be buzzing during their presentations about the latest treatments for anticoagulation.  The scientists who tested Pradaxa on 18,000 patients in the RE-LY study are reportedly presenting their findings to the thousands of cardiologists at this large conference in Chicago (reported by The Sacramento Bee).

It should be interesting to see what the conference attendees have to say about Pradaxa at the end of the Session.  Currently it doesn’t appear that there has been a huge surge of prescriptions for this only alternative to Coumadin.  It could be that cardiologists are just not completely comfortable switching their patients yet.  Once the trend catches on though, Pradaxa could easily become the most popular drug of 2011.
