Lawsuits against Gilead Sciences, the manufacturer of Truvada, claim that Gilead knew about the dangerous risk of kidney disease and kidney failure but failed to warn patients and doctors. These lawsuits also claim that Gilead discovered the dangerous effects of TDF as early as 2004, and developed a solution to the problems, but refused to release the new, safer version of Truvada (TFA, or tenofovir alafemanide fumarate) as a means to increase the profits of the manufacturer. Plaintiff’s lawyers claim that Gilead delayed the release of the safer combination of TFA for over a decade, potentially endangering millions of patients.

After thousands of reports of kidney failure, Gilead eventually released TAF in combination with other drugs under the brand names Genyova, Odefsey, Descovy, and Biktarvy. This was only after sales of TDF reached $10 Billion annually.
