Cancer drug Taxotere linked to permanent hair loss

| Drug Lawsuits

Beasley Allen lawyer Beau Darley joins Beasley Allen Report host and Beasley Allen lawyer Gibson Vance to discuss how an expected, temporary side effect of chemotherapy could prove permanent for patients taking Taxotere, a cancer treatment drug available since 1996. Beau explains Taxotere’s manufacturer, Sanofi-Aventis, failed to inform the FDA, health care providers and the public of the permanent hair loss risk until the FDA forced the company to include a warning on the drug in 2015. The two also discuss how defective medical devices and drugs make it onto the consumer market.

I never dreamed how much this would mean to me

I received another check today, much to my surprise. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I never dreamed how much this would mean to me in my golden years, as I have had hearing problems for years and needed to update my hearing aids, but with a limited income, found that was impossible. I now have the best hearing aids that I have ever had, thanks to you fighting so hard on my behalf.
