  • Dissolves more easily
  • Is less irritating
  • Can be injected more quickly.

This medication is given intravenously (through an IV). Your particular dosing schedule will be based on your height and weight, among other factors.
 
Before starting treatment with protein-bound paclitaxel, review the drug's safety information with your healthcare provider.
