Breast Cancer Drug Offers Better Responses
One of the latest, most promising treatments for some women with metastatic breast cancer is a new drug that increases the response rate of tumors and causes fewer side effects, researchers say.
The technology behind the drug, nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel or AbraxaneTM) marks a breakthrough, say Vicente Valero M.D., and Edgardo Rivera, M.D., both in the Department of Breast Medical Oncology at M. D. Anderson.
