What is Abraxane?
Protein-bound paclitaxel is an injectable formulation of paclitaxel, a mitotic inhibitor drug used in the treatment of breast cancer, lung cancer and pancreatic cancer. In this formulation, paclitaxel is bonded to albumin as a delivery vehicle. It is sometimes called nab-paclitaxel (with the "nab" syllable derived from "nanoparticle albumin–bound"). It is sold in the United States under the trade name Abraxane.
