The risks associated with Tenofovir were well-understood by the Defendants at the time they began developing and testing TDF-based drugs.
As a result of taking the TDF-based drugs, individuals suffered harm and injuries including, but not limited to, decreased kidney function, renal failure, end-stage renal disease, renal impairment, chronic kidney disease, tubular dysfunction, chronic liver disease, Fanconi syndrome, reduced bone density, bone breaks/fractures, bone malformation, and tooth loss.
This claim is being brought on behalf of all individuals who, during the period 2004 to the present were prescribed and ingested TDF-based drugs in Canada and experienced any of the harm and injuries described above.
The proposed lawsuit alleges that the maker of these drugs knew that there was a safer alternative to TDF and knowingly delayed and withheld the development, marketing and sale of the alternative, to maximize their profit from sales of Viread, Truvada, Atripla, Complera and Stribild.
Due to the Defendants’ actions, Canadians were exposed to the more toxic and dangerous medication for over a decade and suffered permanent, debilitating, and sometimes fatal, injuries and harm relating to kidney and bone damage.
