At the Crossroads of Medicine and Money

Abstract:
Abraxane is not so much a new drug as it is the repackaging of an old one. It wraps one of the best-known cancer fighters — paclitaxel, a compound derived from the Pacific yew — inside particles of a blood protein thousands of times smaller than a speck of dust. This submicroscopic Trojan horse gallops into the vulnerable interior of a tumor cell, where it unloads its poison.
