Tarceva, which is generically known as Erlotinib, is a drug meant to treat non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), pancreatic cancer, and other kinds of cancer. It is marketed in the United States by OSI Pharmaceuticals and Genentech. The drug is often used as a maintenance drug, assuming that the tumor has not grown much during and after the initial treatment. Sometimes, it is used as a second-tier treatment if other therapies have not worked.
Unfortuntely, Tarceva has some serious side effects, which create additional injury for patients trying to beat cancer. Occasionally, Tarceva causes symptoms similar to those of the skin disease Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN), which is a more serious version of Stevens-Johnson Syndrom (SJS).
Tarceva side effects might include, but are not limited to the following:
- Partial Hair Loss
- Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis
- Hearing Loss
- Difficulty with Blood Clotting
- Gastrointestinal Bleeding
If you or a loved one has experienced some sort of skin issues or gastrointestinal bleeding, you might be entitled to compensation. Contact an attornery at our Tarceva law firm to schedule a free consultation, and take the first step to securing compensation for your Tarceva injuries.
