What is Taxotere, and Are There Taxotere Lawsuits?
Taxotere is a plant alkaloid chemotherapy drug derived from the yew tree. Approved for use in 1996, it works by disrupting the microtubular networks in cancer cells. Taxotere is used intravenously in patients with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer (after failure of prior chemotherapy) and in combination with doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide in patients with operable node-positive breast cancer.
Plaintiffs in numerous pending lawsuits have cited to studies showing that Taxotere was no more effective than other chemotherapy drugs that did not have the same side-effect of a substantial risk of permanent hair loss. Plaintiffs further allege that Sanofi-Aventis knew of this link between Taxotere and permanent hair loss, but failed to properly warn potential users.
Accordingly, numerous lawsuits from across the nation have been filed against Sanofi-Aventis. Many of these claims have been consolidated into a Multi-District Litigation (MDL), which centralizes pretrial activities for multiple cases to save time, court costs, and attorney’s fees. These cases are pending before the Honorable Kurt D. Engelhardt, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana.
