Description of the remedy.
Taxotere 120mg is used to treat tumorous diseases.

The substance of docetaxel is obtained from natural raw materials (biomass from needles of European yew).
Taxotere is a drug from the category of those medicines that allow to deal with complex health problems, not excluding also extremely complicated.
In particular, the drug is created for those who suffer from breast cancer, which should be operable as “with” and “without” lesions of the lymph nodes. Additional therapy with drugs should not be carried out by those patients who are already a step away from chemotherapy. In addition, the doctor will always pay attention to the stage of cancer. It is sometimes better to give supportive therapy to a person who already has no chance and give him a little more time than to immediately strike at the immune system, which only worsens the condition.
Taxotere is often used in combination with other medicines. In particular, Doxorubicin is widely believed to be a very popular “partner” of the drug, which is designed to treat patients with breast cancer with pronounced metastases. Previously, patients had to receive so-called cytotoxic chemotherapy if the doctor decided on such a step and appointed Taxotere.
