Taxol / Abraxane

Abraxane is similar to Taxol but is not required to be dissolved in a toxic solvent prior to administration.

This solvent can cause allergic reactions in some patients, and to counteract these reactions, patients are often treated with steroids and antihistamines. Patients receiving Abraxane do not need these treatments.
