Viread Lawsuit Attorneys in Pittsburgh
Viread is a brand name for an HIV treatment drug known as tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF). This class of drugs is effective in HIV treatment and prevention plans, but produces side effects that can be severe.
Gilead, the drug manufacturer that produced TDF, withheld the development of a more effective, less hazardous HIV drug: Tenofovir alafenamide fumarate (TAF) in an attempt to maximize the profits resulting from their TDF drugs. Meanwhile, patients who were prescribed Viread suffered from its harsh side effects.
