Clinical Trials Using Paclitaxel
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Paclitaxel. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.
NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.
Docetaxel or Paclitaxel in Reducing Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy in African American Patients with Stage I-III Breast Cancer
This phase II trial studies how well docetaxel or paclitaxel work in reducing chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy in African American patients with stages I-III breast cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether giving docetaxel or paclitaxel may work better than other methods in reducing chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy in patients with breast cancer.

Ketogenic Diet and Chemotherapy in Affecting Recurrence in Patients with Stage IV Breast Cancer
This phase I trial studies how well a ketogenic diet and chemotherapy work in affecting the return of cancer in patients with stage IV breast cancer. Ketogenic diet may be more effective than standard nutrition and may affect quality of life, inflammation, and tumor-related changes. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving ketogenic diet and chemotherapy may be better in patients with breast cancer.
