First Protein-Bound Nanoparticle Breast Cancer Drug

Abstract:
Researchers at Lynn Sage Comprehensive Breast Center played a significant role in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of ABRAXANE(TM) (paclitaxel protein bound particles for injectable suspension), indicated for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer.

"This approval means that women with metastatic breast cancer no longer need to endure the toxicities associated with solvents and will no longer need steroid premedication when they receive this albumin-bound form of paclitaxel.
