Taxotere is a chemotherapy drug that is often used during treatment of breast cancer and has been linked to permanent hair loss, also known as alopecia. Being that over 250,000 women each year are diagnosed with breast cancer, the odds of you knowing someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer is very high. Taxotere’s treatment plan is less frequent than many other chemotherapy options which makes this a popular option for women who have been affected.

While temporary loss of hair is normal with chemotherapy treatments, permanent loss of hair is not supposed to occur. Taxotere’s creator, Sanofi-Aventis, had been conducting studies on hair loss in it’s users since 2005, finding that more than 90% of it’s users were suffering from permanent hair loss but did nothing to notify potential patients that this would occur.

Important Questions:

  • Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with breast cancer and were you given Taxotere as your chemotherapy treatment?
  • Have you or a loved one suffered from permanent hair loss or alopecia after taking Taxotere?

If you have answered yes to these two simple questions, call us today for an absolutely free consultation. While it may seem like losing your hair to save your life is a fair trade, the surprise of losing your hair permanently will affect the lives of the women far past their cancer treatment. Imagine waking up and looking in the mirror every morning for the rest of your life to be reminded of the time when you had been suffering and taking the chemotherapy drug Taxotere and there’s nothing you can do to change that, giving the impression that you will be a cancer patient for life.

While it is required by all manufacturers to disclose all side effects when they are marketing their drugs and Sanofi-Aventis had not done so with Taxotere.

If you have taken Taxotere while going through chemotherapy and have suffered from permanent hair loss also known as alopecia, you may be entitled to compensation under the law.
