Truvada Lawsuit – Bone & Kidney Problems

About Truvada:

Truvada is a commonly used antiretroviral, used to reduce the risk of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from multiplying in your body. Truvada contains a combination of emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, which works by blocking an enzyme called reverse transcriptase, which HIV uses to reproduce and copy its genetic material [1].

Is Truvada Safe?

Truvada risks have been long known, which include kidney failure and serious bone problems, according to their website [2]. Although these risks have been made known by the manufacturer, Gilead Sciences, lawsuits are being filed against Gilead because many were not made aware of a safer drug, also created by Gilead Sciences. This safer drug is known as F/TAF and it’s alleged that F/TAF would have prevented these symptoms, specifically broken bones and kidney problems.

It is claimed that F/TAF, yields far less toxicity due to it being a more potent compound that is prescribed in low dosages. According to the press release from Gilead on March 6th, 2019, in the F/TAF version, which they are now referring to as Descovy, tenofovir disoproxil fumarate is replaced by tenofovir alafenamide in 25 mg, compared to the tenofovir disoproxil fumarate dosage in Truvada of 300 mg [1].

About Truvada Lawsuits

It is alleged that Gilead was delaying production of the new, safer drug, known as TAF, in order to profit from the tenofovir market which amounted to roughly $14.6 billion in sales in 2018, and is the leading drug in its class. [3]

Because of this delay in production, it is alleged that millions have suffered unnecessarily from:

  • Kidney failure
  • Bone density loss
  • Fractures
