Taxotere is a chemotherapy medication that is used to treat certain types of cancer. The drug is administered intravenously through multiple sessions of chemotherapy, usually occurring once every three weeks. Although the drug has been successful in helping reduce the spread of cancer in many patients, there have been reports of adverse effects from the medicine. Most noteably, female patients have reported cases of alopecia, or permanent hair loss.
Alopecia is a form of hair loss that is caused by the immune system mistakenly attacking hair follicles. In most cases, alopecia is temporary, however, in the case of Taxotere use, patients have reported that this side-effect is permanent. Permanent loss of hair and inability to grow new hair follicles was not a disclosed side-effect of this drug. Lawsuits are currently alleging the producers of the medication knowingly withheld information from physicians and the public about the potential complications. In fact, one lawsuit in particular explicitly states that had these effects been known, another medication known as Taxol would have been prescribed to most patients instead.
