Taxotere Alopecia Lawsuit Claims
Taxotere is a very commonly prescribed chemotherapy treatment that netted it’s manufacturer, Sanofi-Aventis, more than $3 billion in sales recently. While that was good for profit margins it turned out to be awful for many of the patients as studies have since shown that an estimated 6% to 9% of female breast cancer patients suffered permanent alopecia (hair loss). This was not disclosed to the women who were administered Taxotere and many lawsuits have recently been filed against the makers of Taxotere as well as Docetaxel and Docefrez, it’s other trade names. Speaking with a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Taxotere injury lawyer is a wise move.

What Is Alopecia?
Alopecia as an outcome of chemotherapy for a malignancy can be very distressing. The loss of hair usually is temporary and the hair will grow back after the course of treatment is completed. Male patients may feel more comfortable wearing a hat or cap when out in public. Female patients who wish to wear a wig are encouraged to obtain one that is lightweight and the same color as their hair. Having a hairdresser cut the wig to the patient’s usual hair style can increase self-esteem. A kerchief or head scarf can be worn around the house if it is more comfortable than a wig. Receipts for wigs, hairpieces, and other head covering should be saved; they are tax-deductible medical expenses when related to chemotherapy.
