How does Paclitaxel work?

Paclitaxel may help stop cancer cells from dividing and making new cells. Paclitaxel works by blocking the action of proteins called microtubules. These proteins help cells divide. Systemic treatments like Paclitaxel are used to treat metastatic cancer. This is cancer that has spread from one part of the body to another. It is also known as advanced or stage 4 cancer. Systemic treatments travel through the bloodstream. This makes it possible to reach cells in many parts of the body, including cancer cells. Paclitaxel may also affect normal cells. This may cause side effects.
