Dangerous Potential Side Effects of TDF May Cause Harm to Patients
Gilead Sciences, Inc., a commercial pharmaceutical manufacturer, is facing thousands of lawsuits alleging negligence and fraud related to its TDF HIV medication. Many patients claim the HIV medication tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) has caused kidney disease and bone density loss.
Drugs with the brand names Truvada, Viread, Atripla, Stribild, and Complera contain TDF as a primary ingredient. These drugs are designed to help patients by keeping the HIV virus from multiplying and preventing HIV infection. However, the drugs have caused some individuals to suffer severe kidney damages and loss of bone mineral density.
Lawsuits against Gilead allege that it was developing other medications containing tenofovir alafenamide fumarate (TAF) around the time that it was developing its TDF medications. TAF has been shown to be more effective at stopping HIV from multiplying and safer for patients.
