Abstract:
American Pharmaceutical Partners, Inc. and ABRAXIS Oncology, the proprietary drug division of APP, today announced positive results of the randomized, controlled Phase III clinical trial in patients with metastatic breast cancer comparing the investigational product ABRAXANE(TM) to the CremophorŽ solvent-based TAXOLŽ. Patients with metastatic breast cancer receiving the solvent-free nanoparticle paclitaxel, ABRAXANE achieved almost a doubling of the tumor response rate when compared to those patients receiving Bristol-Myers Squibb's TAXOLŽ.
