Active ingredients

The drug ABRAXANE contains one active pharmaceutical ingredient (API):

1 Paclitaxel albumin

Paclitaxel is an antimicrotubule agent that promotes the assembly of microtubules from tubulin dimers and stabilises microtubules by preventing depolymerisation. This stability results in the inhibition of the normal dynamic reorganisation of the microtubule network that is essential for vital interphase and mitotic cellular functions.
