Dabigatran (Pradaxa) is a member of the relatively new class of antithrombotic drugs known as direct thrombin inhibitors (DTIs). It may supplant warfarin (Coumadin) in a number of applications as it may produce a more predictable, potent, and immediate anticoagulant effect, with fewer significant side effects and interactions, and requires less monitoring.
