Chicago Taxotere Lawyer
Nationwide Dangerous Drug Lawyers Serving All of the U.S.
In December 2015, the FDA updated Taxotere labels to include permanent hair loss on its list of possible adverse effects. Taxotere, a chemotherapy drug manufactured by Sanofi-Aventis, is often used to treat breast cancer and is now linked to alopecia, or permanent loss of hair. Women are now filing lawsuits against Sanofi-Aventis, claiming it failed to warn about this risk.

Pursuing a Taxotere Lawsuit
Taxotere (docetaxel) is a chemotherapy drug commonly used to treat breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, advanced stomach cancer, prostate cancer, and head and neck cancer. Lawsuits against Taxotere, claim that if they had been warned that they could suffer permanent hair loss, patients would have taken a different chemotherapy drug, such as Taxol. Taxol is more effective and does not cause permanent hair loss.
Problems with Taxotere
Several studies show that Taxotere leads to significant scalp alopecia. One study found that 10-15% of patients with early breast cancer who received Taxotere suffered long-term hair loss.
These studies and thousands of patients reports caused the FDA to update Taxotere’s labels and spurred a wave of litigation
