Stribild Lawsuit Attorneys in Pittsburgh
The development of HIV treatment drugs has contributed to an improved quality of life for many patients. The most frequently used HIV medication was a drug called tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF), manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Gilead. Stribild is a brand name of one TDF drug.
Many individuals who were diagnosed with HIV were lead to believe they did not have another option besides taking TDF drugs. Although Stribild did serve its intended purpose of inhibiting HIV development, the side effects of the drug resulted in additional harm to patients. Meanwhile, Gilead withheld a drug, called tenofovir alafenamide fumarate or TAF, that is more effective and carries less side effects. In order to maximize profits, Gilead continued to market dangerous TDF drugs although they were aware of a safer solution for HIV treatment — many patients were hurt in the process.
