Over 10,000 lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of Taxotere and docetaxel for concealing information on long-term and permanent side effects, including eye injury and vision damage.
Since 2019, litigation has been ongoing against the developers of Taxotere.
May 2022 Update: The Taxotere excessive eye watering class action lawsuit is moving forward, backed by new studies that speak to the commonality of these side effects.
A related set of cases, under the Taxotere hair loss lawsuit, have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation (MDL 2740). Both the class action lawsuit and the MDL will be handled by the same judge in the US District Court: Eastern District of Louisiana.
Taxotere, also known by its active ingredient docetaxel, is an anticancer agent commonly used during chemotherapy to treat various forms of cancer such as breast cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer.
Taxotere attacks cancerous cells in an aggressive way. Unfortunately, this method means patients can potentially experience severe vision side effects and health risks.
Of the drugs used to treat breast cancer, Taxotere is the most prescribed drug in its class (taxane) – some sources estimate that 75% of breast cancer patients will receive Taxotere as a form of treatment.
