Sanofi is being accused over its chemotherapy drug, called as Taxotere. Taxotere lawsuits allege that the Sanofi-Aventis failed to properly warn patients or their doctors about the severe risk of permanent hair loss, or alopecia.
Although chemotherapy is associated with hair loss, this side effect is normally expected to be temporary. Lawyers in the case allege that the company knew Taxotere cause a risk of permanent hair loss but failed to reveal this information to patients just for the sake of profits.
Patients were told the statement, “Once you have completed all the Taxotere treatment, hair will grow back.” Plaintiffs also allege that the drug carried side effects for permanent hair loss in Europe and Canada long before it was introduced in the United States.
