Paclitaxel: Sources, Chemistry, Anticancer Actions, and Current Biotechnology provides a comprehensive survey of Paclitaxel and its derivatives chemistry, biosynthesis and anticancer activities. In addition, biotechnological methods, including cell cultures, the use of bioreactors and metabolic engineering strategies to improve Paclitaxel production are also discussed. The book discusses topics such as mechanisms of action against cancer, novel forms of Paclitaxel for an effective cancer treatment, strategies for enhancing its bioavailability, and the application of nanocarriers for its delivery and chemotherapy of cancer.
This is a valuable resource for cancer researchers, biotechnologists and members of biomedical field who are interested in the promising anticancer qualities of this antineoplastic drug and how to enhance them for better treatments.
Presents detailed information about Paclitaxel research, from its discovery to clinical uses and biotechnological routes of commercial production
Focuses on Paclitaxel development as an effective chemotherapeutic drug, along with its application in different types of cancers
Encompasses descriptive illustrations and workflows to help the reader fully understand the content and easily apply it to their research
