If You Suffered Permanent Hair Loss After Taking Taxotere, Our Attorneys May Be Able to Help. We're Filing Taxotere Lawsuits Now

What Is Taxotere?

Taxotere (docetaxel) is marketed by Sanofi-Aventis. It was initially approved by the FDA in 1996 and is a drug prescribed to chemotherapy patients in the treatment of breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, advanced stomach cancer, head and neck cancer, and metastatic prostate cancer. The drug is intended to prevent cancer cells from growing and dividing. Taxotere is administered intravenously once every 3-4 weeks.

Taxotere May Cause Permanent Hair Loss

Though users were cautioned regarding various side effects, one side effect that many were not prepared for was permanent hair loss or alopecia. Hair loss is one of the most common side effects of chemotherapy, but many people who had taken the drug found that their hair was not coming back even years after treatment.

Why Our Attorneys Are Filing Taxotere Lawsuits Now

Claims against Sanofi-Aventis argue that if the manufacturer had properly warned of the risks, patients may have been given a different and even more effective drug called Taxol which does not result in permanent hair loss. Even more shocking is that Sanofi-Aventis has warned physicians, patients and regulatory agencies in other countries of the permanent hair loss risk while the U.S. labeling merely stated that “hair generally grows back.” Sanofi was reportedly not willing to release data or investigate the hair loss. Finally, in December of 2015, the FDA updated their warning label to include permanent hair loss.

As one of the first claimants described, permanent alopecia is a “disfiguring condition, especially for women.” Claims against Sanofi include design and manufacturing defects, negligence, breach of express and implied warranty, and fraudulent representation.

Individuals who have been affected by Taxotere are seeking damages for the following:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Psychological counseling and therapy expenses
  • Past and future loss of earnings
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Mental anguish
  • Severe emotional distress
