Taxotere is an anti-cancer chemotherapy drug. Taxotere is classified as a “plant alkaloid,” a “taxane” and an “antimicrotubule agent.” Taxotere has been approved for the treatment of breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, advanced stomach cancer and metastatic prostate cancer. It is also being tested on small cell lung, ovarian, bladder and pancreatic cancers, soft tissue sarcoma and melanoma.
Many chemotherapy drugs can cause temporary hair loss. This is because chemotherapy drugs are extremely powerful medications, and although they attack and destroy fast spreading cancer cells, they also attack other fast growing cells in the body, such as those responsible for hair growth.
Patients who undergo chemotherapy might notice their hair beginning to fall out. Hair loss can range from mild thinning to complete baldness. Hair loss can also occur in places other than the scalp, some patients experience hair loss in their eye brows, eye lashes, armpits or pubic areas. After the conclusion of treatment, hair should begin to grow back. At first, it may grow back with a different texture or slight change in color, but over time it should return to normal
However, there have been recent reports that have indicated the Taxotere has been causing permanent hair loss in some patients. This condition is known as alopecia, and several women have reported that years after Taxotere treatment, their hair has still yet to grow back. For this reason, many women have filed lawsuits against Sanofi-Aventis, the producers of the drug.
