Taxotere Attorney Update: July is International Women with Alopecia Month

[profileleft]TaxotereAttorney[/profileleft]When one serves clients as a Taxotere attorney, he or she gains an understanding of the struggle that women with breast cancer face.  There is no victory that’s more important than when one fights for his or her life and succeeds.  Unfortunately, some women who have won their battles against breast cancer suddenly find themselves in another difficult situation:  facing permanent hair loss.  A growing number of women have alleged that Taxotere side effects have robbed them of their hair.  Since July is International Women with Alopecia Month, everyone at Gomez Trial Attorneys wants to make sure that as many people as possible learn about this situation and gain an understanding of what women forced into this position are enduring.

About International Women with Alopecia Month

International Women with Alopecia Month is an idea that formed several years ago thanks to the efforts of Bald Girls Do Lunch, an online support group for women who are dealing with hair loss.  The group does several different things to offer assistance to women who lose their hair for varying reasons.  While International Women with Alopecia Month has not yet been recognized by any governmental body, it is observed around the world by women who are dealing with alopecia and those who work to help them.

About Taxotere and Alopecia

Taxotere is a medication that is manufactured by Sanofi-Aventis.  The medication was seen as a step forward for women undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer.  The reason was that it only needed to be administered once every three weeks instead of once per week like other drugs.  Clearly, this made the entire treatment protocol easier for patients to manage.  Initially, Taxotere hair loss was seen as normal as it was thought to be temporary.  Temporary hair loss in women is common for those who undergo chemotherapy.

Unfortunately, many a Taxotere attorney received inquiries from women who eventually realized that their hair loss was permanent.  Studies were done, including at least one that was funded by Sanofi-Aventis, that found that nearly 10 percent of women who used Taxotere suffered what is defined as permanent hair loss.  Taxotere lawsuits that have been filed claim that Sanofi-Aventis knew about the possibility of patients losing their hair on a permanent basis but did not alert the public to this risk.  Worse, more than one Taxotere attorney has argued that Sanofi-Aventis actively hid this possibility in order to continue marketing the medication that at its height generated billions of dollars in annual revenue.

How a Taxotere Attorney Can Help

There are many ways that people can help support women who are facing alopecia, as this is a condition that inflicts an enormous amount of emotional distress, pain and suffering and other forms of loss on those who face it every day.  One way for someone who has been diagnosed with permanent alopecia as a result of using Taxotere is to stand up for her legal rights.  If this includes you or someone you love, contact a Taxotere attorney at Gomez Trial Attorneys today to schedule a free initial consultation.
