Paclitaxel is a natural paclitaxel produced from the leaves of the American yew with anti-mitotic properties that grant it potent anti-cancer activity.
Paclitaxel has demonstrated a significant effectiveness against ovarian and breast cancers, and a number of other cancers in clinical trials. Paclitaxel is an anti-mitotic agent that works by stabilizing microtubules and preventing unregulated cell mitosis or division. Paclitaxel has repeatedly demonstrated an additive or synergistic effect with other drugs. Paclitaxel and its relatives thus hold the promise to have widespread applicability to cancer and other non-tumorgenic diseases.
