Xigris was a drug marketed by Eli Lilly and Company. It was meant to treat patients with severe sepsis. However, as of October 25, 2011, Xigris was removed from the market after researchers concluded that Xigris showed no efficacy in treating sepsis. Generically, Xigris was known as drotrecogin alfa. Unfortunately, not only was this drug ineffective, but it also caused additional harm; it increased the amount of bleeding in patients already suffering from sepsis.
About 25% of patients taking Xigris experienced serious bleeding events, such as ecchymoses or GI bleeding. However, more serious bleeding events did take place for a smaller number of patients. Such bleeding events included intracranial hemorrhages.
Xigris was withdrawn from the market after a number of studies have shown that it does not increase the chance of surviving from serious Sepsis. This was especially problematic because Xigris was specifically approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to reduce mortality from severe sepsis. As such, Eli Lilly voluntarily withdrew Xigris from the market, even though the FDA never formally ordered a recall.
