Paclitaxel Injection

Paclitaxel Injection is an antimicrotubule medicine used for cancer chemotherapy. This pharmaceutical drug is manufactured by AdvaCare Pharma, using only high quality ingredients, in its ISO/GMP-approved production plants.



What is Paclitaxel?

Therapeutic Class:

Active Ingredients: Paclitaxel

Paclitaxel Injection is an antineoplastic drug used in cancer chemotherapy. It is used to treat many types of cancer, including Kaposi's sarcoma. The treatment is dependent on what other drugs Paclitaxel has been manufactured with. For this reason, the injection cannot be interchanged with other types.

When combined with human albumin, Paclitaxel can be used to treat breast cancer that is either not improving or has relapsed. A combination of Paclitaxel and polyoxyethylated castor oil can be used to treat ovarian cancer, breast cancer, or lung cancer. It is also used to treat Kaposi's sarcoma in people with AIDS.

The active ingredient, Paclitaxel, is an antimicrotubule agent. Antimicrotubule agents block mitosis, therefore stopping cell growth and the spread of cancer cells.

AdvaCare Pharma is a producer and exporter of Paclitaxel Injections. This medicine is produced in our GMP-certified facilities in China, India, and the USA. These facilities are routinely audited to ensure they comply with health, safety, and environmental standards.

  • breast
  • cervical
  • esophageal
  • Kaposi's sarcoma

  • ovarian
  • pancreatic
  • solid tumor cancers

Paclitaxel is typically manufactured with other drugs, such as albumin or polyoxyethylated castor oil. The combination determines which cancer it will be the most effective in treating.

How should Paclitaxel Injections be used?

This medication has been manufactured as a liquid solution, which is to be given by injection into a vein. Injection of Paclitaxel should only be administered under the supervision of a doctor or healthcare professional, with experience in oncology care.

During treatment, one should keep all their appointments, and get all required tests done on time. It should be noted that there are also some dietary instructions, and there is a higher chance of infection with use. Consult a doctor before starting treatment.

What dose should be given?

As a first-line treatment of advanced ovarian cancer, the usual dose is 135mg/m² IV, given on day 1 of a 21-day cycle. It is typically prescribed with cisplatin or carboplatin.

The exact dosage will depend on the patient, type of cancer, and treatment plan. Refer to a doctor for guidelines on dosage. Do not exceed what they advise.
