Reviews for Paclitaxel protein-bound
Abraxane (paclitaxel protein-bound) for Pancreatic Cancer: "Very toxic to liver. Uncontrollable ascites. Damaging to nerves especially feet and hands. Didn't stop mets. Promises very little outcome. Brother died from liver failure with this drug."

Abraxane (paclitaxel protein-bound) for Breast Cancer: "Have just finished 12 weeks of this for Stage 2 breast cancer. After my first chemo I was told to go and buy some gastro stop for the drive home but I have been very lucky. The only side effects I have had is some aching in my thumbs but I can live with that. I am now about to start Femara for five years and reading some of the reviews and side effects a bit worried."

For Pancreatic Cancer: "My husband has had good results. Some of the side effects he has experienced are diarrhea, occasional nausea, foot pain, hair loss. His tumor markers were lower significantly in a short period of time - from 26,000 to 1,000 within 3 months. Oncologist was very please with his results."

Abraxane (paclitaxel protein-bound) for Breast Cancer, Metastatic: "I have been given Abraxane and Avastin together and after one treatment I had no more pain. I didn't have alot of side effects. Maybe hair loss, which was the least of my concerns. "

Abraxane (paclitaxel protein-bound) for Breast Cancer: "Helped lower tumor markers significantly when recurrence occurred. Slowed cancer growth for 6 mos before neuropathy got too bad. Did not make my wife as sick as Adriamycin/Cytoxin which was her primary treatment at first occurrence. On the downside, our insurance company, BCBS Illinois did not cover Abraxane and we were left with a $54,000 bill. Drug company eventually provided replacement drug as hardship."
