TDF HIV drug lawsuits are mass tort claims against Gilead Sciences, Inc., the maker of several types of HIV pills. HIV drugs based on TDF can cause kidney damage and renal failure, as well as a decrease in bone density, osteoporosis, and broken bones. Despite the risks, the lawsuits claim that Gilead Sciences, Inc. failed to warn doctors and patients of the drug’s dangers, and even withheld a safer drug from the market in order to lengthen their patent protection and maximize their profits. The lawsuits seek punitive damages, as well as compensation for:
*Pain and suffering, and
*Loss of consortium.
