Understanding the dangers of medical errors involving Taxol and Taxotere

Posted on January 8, 2015 2:19 pm under Medical Malpractice

Taxol and Taxotere are both new types of antineoplastic drugs designed to slow down cell growth among cancer patients. Although both are chemotherapy drugs that battle cancer, Taxol and Taxotere have different drug characteristics that can be dangerous when administered to someone who does not need it.

Apart from their names that almost sound alike, these antineoplastic chemotherapy drugs have overlapping qualities when it comes to dosage strength and packaging. Unfortunately, swapping intravenous drugs may cause a myriad of adverse effects among patients, including dangerous drug interactions, severe allergies, and possibly even death.
