It is anticipated to get approvals by end 2010 or early quarter of 2011, this information was received from the company who manufactures Pradaxa - Boehringer Ingelheim

Pradaxa, also known as dabigatran etexilate, as well as Bayer and J&J's Xarelto pill, were designed to replace the Warfarin pill, introduced in 1954.

Warfarin, the standard therapy in stroke prevention, interacts with food and other medicines and doctors must monitor patients' blood frequently. The new generation of anti-clotting pills does not have these drawbacks.

Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pfizer are working on a similar compound called apixaban.
