What is Taxotere?
Taxotere is a chemotherapy drug used to treat breast cancer in women. The drug is made by Sanofi SA and is administered intravenously. The drug works by interfering with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body.

Several plaintiffs have filed claims against Taxotere manufacturer Sanofi-Aventis. Claims center around the company’s failure to warn patients of the high risk of permanent hair loss that is associated with ingesting the drug. The claim states that if plaintiffs would have been better notified of the hair loss side effects, they would have sought out an alternative treatment.
