Truvada, a tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) drug, treats HIV infections, and since 2012, has been used as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV. However, TDF drugs like Truvada have been linked to severe side-effects such as chronic kidney disease, bone density loss and fracturing. Lawsuits have been filed against the drug manufacturer, Gilead Sciences, Inc., concerning these conditions, along with claims that that the company knew of the harmful side effects, but withheld a safer alternative, tenofovir alafenamide (TAF), to reap profits from the patent it controlled over Truvada. In fact, Gilead had a monopoly on the life-saving drug until October 2020, costing American users roughly $1,700 per month.
The delayed release of Gilead’s TAF drugs has allegedly caused tens of thousands of HIV patients to develop injuries unnecessarily. These victims have suffered injuries and amassed enormous medical bills fighting to regain their health.
