Enduring cancer of any kind is scary enough for a woman. Breast cancer is even more so. To survive it takes an extraordinary amount of courage and strength. Being given a medication that is allegedly supposed to help make you better, but really only makes you life worse in other ways, is not at all fair or just. That is exactly what happens to many women who are given the chemotherapy drug Taxotere, also sold as Docetaxel and or Docefrez. These medications are plant based alkaloids that, like other chemotherapy agents, cause hair loss. However with Taxotere the hair loss is in many cases permanent. How on earth is a woman, who has survived breast cancer, supposed to feel better if she has to walk around void of any scalp hair, eyebrows or eyelashes? Our Chicago Taxotere alopecia injury attorneys will make the big drug companies accountable for the pain, suffering and despair their product has caused you.

Taxotere, Docefrez and Docetaxel are all anti-cancer drugs. They are classified as taxanes, plant alkaloids and anti-microtubule agents. Each classification of drug makes a different type of chemotherapy medication and each comes from a different plant or tree.
Taxotere, and all chemotherapy meds, work by destroying a cells ability to divide and copy itself. Specifically, Taxotere exerts its’ effects on the cells microtubule which is responsible for cell division and replication. Without microtubule function the cell ultimately dies.
Healthcare professionals in the United States have been aware of the devastating side effects of Taxotere since 2005. The adverse reactions were made public in Europe in 2005 but it was not until December 2015 that the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) made Sanofi-Aventis (Taxotere’s manufacturer) put a warning label on the box. That does little good as Taxotere is given in a doctors office, surgical center or hospital via IV drip and the patient never sees the box. In most cases the doctor never alerts the patient to the possible side effects of Taxotere.
