Taxol only used in some cases of triple-negative?


Question from Kelly: Why is it that some triple-negatives receive Taxol during chemotherapy and some patients do not?
Answers - George Sledge, M.D. In my clinic, if I’m going to give a patient chemotherapy for a triple-negative breast cancer, that chemotherapy regimen will virtually always include a taxane.
Beth Baughman DuPree, M.D., F.A.C.S. All of my patients also get a taxane, unless they're allergic to it.
