Medical Natural Paclitaxel 33069-62-4 Taxol For Cancer Treatment Drug Plant Extracts
Paclitaxel is a chemotherapy drug. It also known by its original brand name, Taxol. The drug is made from the needles of a particular type of yew tree. It works by stopping cancer cells separating into two new cells, so it blocks the growth of the cancer. It is a treatment for various types of cancer, including
|3||Non small cell lung cancer.|
AIDS related Kaposi's sarcoma
Sometimes it is combined with other anti cancer drugs.
One type of paclitaxel is combined with a protein called albumin to form a drug called Abraxane. Doctors also call it nab-paclitaxel. This drug tends to cause fewer side effects than other types of paclitaxel. It treats breast cancer that has spread and pancreatic cancer that has spread.
How you have paclitaxel
You usually have paclitaxel as an injection into a vein. It can cause an allergic reaction. To try to prevent this, you have a steroid injection and tablets before the paclitaxel drip. You also have anantihistamine (such as chlorphenamine) into a vein about an hour before your treatment. You will also have a medicine to prevent heartburn, such as ranitidine or cimetidine. Abraxane does not usually cause an allergic reaction so you don't need the anti allergy drugs with abraxane.
You can have paclitaxel through a thin, short tube (a cannula) put into a vein in your arm each time you have treatment. Or you may have it through a central line, a portacath or a PICC line. These are long, plastic tubes that give the drugs directly into a large vein in your chest. You have the tube put in just before your course of treatment starts and it stays in place as long as you need it.
You usually have chemotherapy as a course of several cycles of treatment. The treatment plan for paclitaxel depends on which cancer you have. You can find out about how doctors plan chemotherapy in the chemotherapy section.
