TDF Lawsuit Claims Gilead Delayed Safer HIV Drugs

In May 2018, Gilead was hit with a lawsuit by patients who accused the drug-maker of intentionally delaying development of a less-toxic version of TDF to maximize profits on drugs like Truvada.

Lawyers claim that Gilead failed to warn patients about potential side effects, although the drug-maker knew as early as 2001 that TDF was “…highly toxic in the doses prescribed and risked permanent and possibly fatal damage to the kidneys and bones.”

Truvada Class Action Lawsuit

A class action lawsuit was also filed against Gilead by 2 men from California who suffered bone and kidney damage after taking Truvada, according to the Los Angeles Times. The class action is seeking compensation for everyone in California who took Truvada and similar drugs before developing side effects, such as kidney failure and bone fractures.

Truvada Lawsuits

A growing number of lawsuits have been filed against Gilead Sciences by people who took Truvada or other HIV medications and were subsequently diagnosed with broken bones, osteoporosis, kidney failure, and other side effects.

How Can Filing a TDF Lawsuit Help?

Gilead is accused of intentionally selling Truvada and other medications with TDF, an ingredient that has been linked to severe side effects. Gilead is also accused of failing to warn patients about the health risks.

Lawsuits can potentially help individuals who were injured by Truvada and other TDF medications seek financial compensation for their pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, disability, and more. Speaking to an experienced attorney is the first step in seeking justice.
