Clinical benefit was achieved in 24 patients Our clinical experience demonstrates that most women treated with nab-paclitaxel experienced some clinical benefit. In an exploratory analysis, the relative risk of death for various patient subgroups was estimated using Cox proportional hazards regression. Nab-paclitaxel is a solvent-free, taxane-based chemotherapy approved for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer mbc.

Paclitaxel and docetaxel are both hydrophobic, and to enable intravenous administration, they are formulated using the synthetic solvents polyoxyethylated castor oil Cremophor EL: Eligible patients for this study included all women with mbc who were treated with single-agent nab-paclitaxel at the Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre. One patient experienced febrile neutropenia. The odds ratio for achieving clinical benefit with the qw schedule was 2.


Notably, clinical benefit was also seen in heavily pretreated women median of 3 cycles of chemotherapy before nab-paclitaxel and those previously exposed to taxanes in the adjuvant and metastatic settings.

Randomized crossover pharmacokinetic study of solvent-based paclitaxel and nab-paclitaxel. Survival curves for patients receiving weekly Q-weekly and everyweeks Q3-weekly nab-paclitaxel.

Survival curves were generated using the Kaplan—Meier method and were compared using the log-rank test. Regardless of dosing schedule, women experiencing clinical benefit lived significantly longer than those not experiencing a benefit That trial will evaluate the relationships of sparc overexpression and of changes in blood levels of caveolin 1 with progression-free survival and secondary endpoints of response during treatment.

Phase ii trial of nab-paclitaxel compared with docetaxel as first-line chemotherapy in patients with metastatic breast cancer: Pharmacological ;i of formulation vehicles: Median survivals were 7.
