Taxotere

The chemotherapy drug Taxotere/Docetaxel was marketed to women as a more effective drug to treat breast cancer. Taxotere’s manufacturer failed to disclose a known side effect of the drug, namely permanent irreversible hair loss, to women in the United States. However, this side effect was disclosed to women in Europe since 2005.

The FDA mandated a label change in the United States effective January 2016, but there are thousands of women who have taken this drug and not been advised of this consequence. There was and is an equally effective drug on the market that does not have this severe side effect.

The Taxotere Litigation Group acts as a platform for members in to discuss litigation and share research and expert information.

Members of the Group have access to a secure, members-only list server and document library, as well as meeting and education programs throughout the year.

  • Meetings: The group meets at AAJ Annual and Winter conventions.
  • Membership: The group is limited to AAJ Regular, Life, Sustaining, Leader Forum, and President’s Club member only.
  • Annual Dues: $300 for first member/$100 for additional members from the same firm (no firm paying more than $400).
