Taxotere Was Intended to Save Lives of Cancer Patients, Instead it Caused Permanent Hair Loss and Mental Harm
Taxotere was a drug created by pharmaceutical company Sanofi-Aventis. The chemotherapy drug was created with the intention of treating breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, end stage stomach cancer, cancers of the head and neck as well as metastatic prostate cancer in adults. This drug was meant to provide hope to those who received otherwise terminal diagnoses. This drug also may have been a last resort for women and men who still had full lives left to live. Ultimately, it had the opposite effect.
