Patients reliant on antiretroviral drugs were exposed to a risk for osteoporosis, broken bones, and kidney failure when they took the leading tenofovir drug known as Truvada. The manufacturer, Gilead, created a safer version of the drug yet halted its development for a decade despite promising early clinical results. Critics say drug company executives intentionally shelved the safer drug in order to extend its patent and preserve its market dominance of drugs containing tenofovir. As a result, HIV positive patient suffered from osteoporosis and kidney failure from Truvada for an extra decade.
Persons who developed kidney problems or osteoporosis from Truvada are seeking clarification of the qualifications required to participate in a Truvada side effects lawsuit. Our law firm offers free, no-obligation, confidential consultations to anyone who feels they may have a claim, but we have outlined the basic qualifications in this section. In general, these are factors that are considered in each Truvada lawsuit claim.
For persons and family members of persons who meet these qualifications, it is likely you will be eligible to file a Truvada lawsuit for kidney disease or broken bones. There are multiple reasons to file a claim. First, Truvada lawyers believe individuals who have suffered from Truvada side effects may be eligible for compensation for the expense of medical treatment, pain, suffering, and loss associated with Truvada broken bones and kidney problems. More meaningful than that to some is the opportunity to hold a large corporation accountable for patient safety and dishonest business practices. Critics say Truvada withheld a safer drug from the public for a decade, putting million at risk for serious Truvada side effects.
