Truvada effectively treats and prevents HIV/AIDS in those diagnosed and those at risk, but it also can cause serious side effects. These risks include bone loss that can lead to fractures and renal problems that can lead to kidney failure and even death.
The drug’s manufacturer, Gilead Sciences, is accused of knowing of these dangers and was aware that another type of drug was safer than theirs. A federal judge has agreed to hear cases filed by patients who say that Gilead chose to continue marketing Truvada and delay introducing the other drug to increase profits.
Gilead is now introducing a new drug regimen that they are explicitly marketing as being safer. The company is also accused of purposely delaying its release to extend their profits on Truvada.
Studies have shown that those taking Truvada experience higher losses in bone density compared to the safer drugs, and 2.25X higher risk of chronic kidney disease. One study showed that the risk of chronic kidney disease – a potentially fatal condition – increased 33% for each year that a patient with HIV took the drug.
