What Kind Of Drug Is Taxotere?

In layman’s terms Taxotere is a chemotherapy drug used to fight different types of cancer such as breast cancer, lung cancer and prostate cancer. It is most commonly used to treat early stages of breast cancer in females and all Taxotere injury claims (s0 far) have been regarding permanent hair loss in women.

On a deeper level Taxotere is an anti-microtubule. The microtubule is part of the cell that is responsible for cell replication and division. As cancer is the rapid and unregulated division and proliferation of cells destroying the microtubule destroys the cells ability to divide and replicate itself. Without the microtubule the cell dies and processed through the body as waste.

In terms of drug classification Taxotere is a taxane, a plant based alkaloid as well an anti-microtubule.

Why Does It Cause Permanent Hair Loss?

Taxotere and other chemotherapy drugs cannot differentiate between healthy cells and cancerous cells so they attack them all. Different chemo drugs attack different types of cells and each type of bodily cell is vulnerable to different types of chemo drugs. Hair, skin and stomach cells are susceptible to Taxotere hence the hair loss. Taxotere is derived from a much more toxic plant than other chemotherapy drugs and this is the reason for the permanent hair loss.

What Are The Grounds For My Taxotere Lawsuit?

There are various reasons, all of which are legitimate and compensable, for filing a Taxotere, Docefrez or Docetaxel lawsuit:

  • Drug companies were selling the drug without properly testing it.
  • They failed to determine whether the drug was safe.
  • They were selling the drug without disclosing the dangers or risks.
  • Manufacturers failed to properly warn patients and health care providers.
  • The public was misled in advertising and marketing.
  • Sanofi and others were manufacturing a dangerous drug.
  • Information was concealed from the public.
  • Dangers and risks associated with the drug were downplayed.
