What is Stribild?

Gilead Sciences sells the anti-HIV medication Stribild®. It is also known as the “Quad” pill because it contains a combination of 4 different drugs — Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate (TDF), elvitegravir, cobicistat, and emtricitabine. It was approved by the FDA in 2012.

What is the problem?

Gilead is facing lawsuits from patients who developed bone and kidney side effects of TDF, an ingredient in Stribild. They accuse Gilead of failing to adequately warn about these side effects and intentionally delaying a safer version of TDF to maximize profits.

HIV Drug Lawsuits

In May 2018, two people who were injured by Gilead’s anti-HIV medications filed a lawsuit.

They claim that Gilead Gilead kept safer version of tenofovir in its laboratories while patients with HIV suffered for up to a decade of “additional accumulated kidney and bone toxicity.”

“Instead of continuing to develop the safer alternative, the lawsuit claims, the Foster City company decided to hide tenofovir’s risks while earning billions of dollars as it became one of the world’s most prescribed medicines for HIV.”

Gilead Recommends Safer HIV Drugs

Now that Gilead is selling the safer version of tenofovir, Gilead recommends that doctors switch their patients to the newer drugs to minimize their risk of kidney and bone side effects. Unfortunately, the newer drugs came too late for many patients who were injured.
