Truvada Facts & History Information

Truvada is a pill-based drug that prevents HIV cells from multiplying but does not cure HIV-1 infections or AIDS. The drug's role is to help reduce the risk of getting HIV-1 infections.

Gilead's inaugural HIV drug, Viread, received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 2001. Gilead bought the rights to TDF - that had been around since the 1980s but was not feasible for AIDS treatment - and modified it so it could be taken orally in pill form. That is when the drug started getting used to stop HIV from taking hold and prevent it from spreading.

Several studies have linked Truvada and the other TDF-based HIV pills with serious side effects, including bone density loss, lactic acidosis, and kidney problems. These side effects have led to hundreds of Truvada lawsuits against Gilead Sciences, Inc.

TRUVADA MDL

Truvada claims against Gilead Sciences, Inc. are still new and, accordingly, settlements are a long way away. In the future, the courts are likely to consolidate current lawsuits, and the potential lawsuits of thousands of people who have suffered from the serious complications of Truvada, into multidistrict litigation (MDL). People who took Gilead's other HIV drugs containing TDF are also expected to come forward and file lawsuits for compensation.

Plaintiff Allegations

Allegations against Gilead Sciences, Inc include:

  • Failing to disclose Truvada's significant risk for toxicity and bone and kidney damage.
  • Failing to warn doctors and patients of the kidney and bone risks in all patients. Accordingly, people could not make informed decisions and, potentially, avoid their injuries.
  • Misrepresenting the risks and benefits of Truvada to doctors and patients so it could sell these drugs.
  • Withholding a safer version of these drugs and forcing victims to continue to experience damaging side effects.
