ks treatment/abraxane
Feb 18, 2007

I have been getting chemo for ks for about a year. The lesions haven't gone away and now my doctor wants to bump me up to "abraxane". Any feedback on this?

Response from Dr. Pierone

Abraxane is a form of paclitaxel, a chemotherapy drug with good activity against Kaposi's Sarcoma. It is difficult to know if this is a good idea for you without knowledge of your previous treatment, immune status, etc. The most important thing is to make sure your therapy is being directed by a clinician with experience and expertise in KS management. Best of luck!
