Failure to Warn Consumers of the Risk

Taxotere lawsuits assert that Sanofi Aventis, the manufacturer of the drug, failed to warn consumers of the potential risk of permanent hair loss associated with this medication. Had the manufacturer warned patients of this risk, they and their doctors could have opted for a different chemotherapy drug to avoid permanent hair loss.

This drug has been approved for use in the treatment of:

  • Breast cancer
  • Head and neck cancer
  • Non-small cell lung cancer
  • Metastatic prostate cancer
  • Stomach cancer in advanced stages

The most serious side effects of this medication include permanent hair loss and neutropenic enterocolitis, which is an inflammation of a pouch at the top of the large intestine that can be fatal. Other side effects include low red and white blood cell counts, pain in the bones, muscles, and joints, sores in the mouth and throat, infection, fluid retention, weakness and fatigue, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, and peripheral neuropathy.
