Taxol for Beginners

'Paclitaxel is a type of chemotherapy drug known as a taxane. It is thought to work by interfering with microtubules, which are part of the internal scaffolding needed by cells when they are dividing into 2 cells. Over time, this leads to cell death. Because cancer cells divide more quickly than normal cells, they are more likely than normal cells to be affected by this drug'.
