Every year, approximately 300,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States. Nationwide, most doctors oversee treatment of their breast cancer patients using Taxotere, a chemotherapy drug produced by the drug company Sanofi-Aventis. Taxotere is the most frequently prescribed medication in its drug class. Consequently, it is a highly profitable product for Sanofi, earning the company more than $3 billion in the year 2009 alone.
Unfortunately, the chemotherapy drug has been linked to permanent hair loss, or alopecia, in patients. Approximately 9% of breast cancer patients sustained prolonged hair loss. For many women, the emotional effects of alopecia are considerable and extensive. Some experience anxiety, depression, and distress as a result of their hair loss. If you or a loved one sustained hair loss after using Taxotere in breast cancer treatment, speak with our drug injury lawyer at The Fox Law Firm, P.C. about your options.

Permanent hair loss can decrease quality of life, social functioning, body image, sexuality, and more. Many consumers claim that Sanofi misled them by stating that their hair would grow back once treatment was through. Comparable drugs on the market may be less likely to cause alopecia.
