TAXOTERE SIDE EFFECT FACTS

When faced with the diagnosis of breast cancer, women are presented with many life-changing decisions. These decisions include whether or not to undergo surgery, chemotherapy, or other medical treatments aimed at curing breast cancer. One of these decisions, which should not have been a difficult decision, is the type of chemotherapy they choose to undergo. Taxotere is a chemotherapy drug approved in the treatment of breast cancer. Taxotere is administered intravenously through a vein to try to prevent cancer cells from growing and dividing.

The manufacturer of Taxotere, Sanofi-Aventis, however, created Taxotere side effects that it did not warn women about. In particular, Taxotere attorneys at NGK Law have uncovered evidence that the manufacturer of Taxotere failed to warn patients and physicians of the Taxotere side effect of increased of risks of permanent hair loss through the use of Taxotere during chemotherapy. The Taxotere lawsuit attorneys at NGK Law have uncovered evidence that Taxotere has the unwanted side effect of permanent hair loss in women in approximately 3% of the women that are administered Taxotere. There has been evidence uncovered by Taxotere attorneys that the Taxotere side effects can increase to as high as 6.3% when given in combination with the drugs Adriamycin and Cyclophosphamide, according to a study by the Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers in Colorado.

The Taxotere lawsuits allege that the manufacturer of Taxotere failed to properly warn women about the risks of permanent hair loss while using Taxotere, instead of an alternative chemotherapy drug. The Taxotere lawsuits allege that had these devastating Taxotere side effects been disclosed to women, they would have chosen a different chemotherapy drug that does not have the devastating Taxotere side effects.
