Cancer drug Taxotere linked to permanent hair loss

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.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
