HIV drug Truvada contains emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Truvada is the topic of pending multidistrict litigation (MDL). Known as MDL 2881, the case against drug manufacturer Gilead Sciences, Inc. alleges that those who use this drug may develop renal failure, thinning bones, and other serious side effects.

Understanding Truvada and MDL 2881
Truvada is used to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and
hepatitis B, as well as to prevent HIV infection when used with other methods to reduce the risk. Truvada for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is the first pill marketed specifically for this purpose.
Some users, however, allege that manufacturer Gilead Sciences, Inc. did not adequately warn users of the drug about some of the most serious side effects.
Some of the possible side effects, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, include:
- Bone density loss
- Increased risk of fracture
- Renal impairment
- Kidney failure
Because of the high-profile marketing campaign for Truvada for PrEP, many healthy young people used the medication. They may now suffer from chronic and progressive medical conditions that require ongoing care and management, and that may limit their ability to work for a living and live the active lifestyle they are accustomed to.
MDL 2881 is based on allegations that Truvada users could not make an informed choice about the drug without adequate warnings and suffered serious medical conditions, and significant impacts to their quality of life and financial health.
