Why were patients in the United States never warned about the risk of permanent hair loss from Taxotere treatment?
It is not entirely clear why Sanofi warned consumers in many countries about the risk of permanent hair loss from Taxotere, but did not warn American consumers. A study funded by Sanofi, which was launched soon after the drug received FDA approval in 1996, found evidence of the Taxotere hair loss risk by 2005. The study showed that more than 9% of patients exposed to Taxotere experienced permanent hair loss problems, yet this information was never shared with the American public. Instead, the company continued with its aggressive, and at times illlegal, marketing tactics to boost Taxotere to prominence.

Who is at risk for permanent hair loss from Taxotere?
Research shows that approximately nine percent of patients exposed to Taxotere will experience permanent alopecia or hair loss. Taxotere hair loss may result in complete baldness or hair that grows in odd clumps or patches. Anyone who has been exposed to Taxotere chemotherapy treatment may experience ongoing hair loss problems.
Aren't most products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff can expect only a small, symbolic settlement?
Taxotere hair loss lawsuits are not class action lawsuits. Instead, it is likely Taxotere claims filed around the nation against Sanofi will be consolidated together as MDL, or Multi-District Litigation. Multidistrict litigation enables many parallel claims regarding a common product risk or defect to be processed at once, while preserving the unique elements of each case. Individual claimants in a products liability MDL can expect to receive real compensation, with the amount based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff.
We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even life-long, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
