Medical science has made significant progress in the treatment and prevention of HIV. Among these breakthroughs are HIV PrEP drugs such as Truvada that help prevent the transmission of the virus. Sadly, these drugs can come with significant side effects.
Recent information reveals that consumers of Truvada can experience severe symptoms such as kidney, liver, or bone density problems. In a recent lawsuit, plaintiffs allege that the maker of Truvada – Gilead Sciences, Inc. – failed in their obligation to produce a safe medication.
National Record Retrieval is dedicated to helping lawyers aiming to pursue these lawsuits on behalf of clients. We can take the lead to obtain the relevant medical records that you need to prove liability while you focus on the legal aspects of your cases.
In an article published in Drugwatch, it states that there is a significant frequency of side effects connected to people who took Truvada. While most of these side effects are relatively mild, a significant portion of people endure damage to their kidneys, liver, and bone density. In the most extreme examples, patients experienced acute renal failure, significant osteoporosis, and even a worsening of existing infections.
Lawsuits against Gilead Sciences, Inc. allege that Gilead knew that a key ingredient in Truvada resulted in significant kidney damage. If true, this may mean that Gilead is liable for the injuries or deaths of their customers.
