Truvada Lawsuit

On May 8, 2018, multiple lawsuits were filed against Gilead Sciences, Inc., over its promotion of HIV medication that causes long-term damage to bones and kidneys and the company’s concealment of a safer, less toxic version of the drug.

Truvada Sold Despite Known Dangerous Side Effects

Truvada as well as Viread, Atripla, Complera, and Stribild are a class of antiviral drugs prescribed to treat and prevent HIV and AIDS. However, they have also been linked to kidney disease and bone damage. In response, hundreds of patients who took Truvada and similar drugs have come together in a California-based multi-district lawsuit against the drug’s manufacturer, Gilead Sciences, Inc., for its neglectful role in failing to warn individuals about the harmful side effects and misrepresenting the safety of its active ingredient, tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF). The pending lawsuits allege that Truvada had a design defect and that Gilead delayed a safer drug.

Common injuries from Truvada and similar drugs include the following:

Acute or chronic kidney disease
Kidney Failure
Fanconi Syndrome
Osteopenia
Osteoporosis
Osteomalacia

What Is Truvada?

Truvada is a prescription drug used to treat and prevent HIV-1. HIV, which stands for human immunodeficiency virus, is a deadly virus that weakens your immune system by destroying essential white blood cells that help fight off disease and infections. Truvada contains two drugs in one pill: tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and emtricitabine. These are antiviral drugs used to treat infection from viruses and help slow HIV progression.

Truvada was the first drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2012 to diminish the threat of HIV infection in uninfected individuals who are at a high risk of becoming infected and who may partake in sexual activity with HIV-infected individuals. The drugs contained in Truvada are antiviral drugs that are used to treat infection from viruses. Truvada comes in the form of a tablet you take by mouth once daily.

However, Truvada has also been linked to a few severe side effects, including decreased bone density, osteoporosis, kidney damage, renal failure, and lactic acidosis. Evidence is mounting that Gilead Science, the sole maker of HIV/AIDS medications, illegally withheld test results for more than a decade that reveal the drug formula to be highly dangerous. If you or a loved one suffered from bone disease or kidney failure after taking Truvada, you might be able to pursue a case to recover compensation.
