The state of California has a breast cancer rate of 121. This means that 121 women are either diagnosed with, or die from, breast cancer each year per 100,000 females. A very common drug used to treat breast cancer in women is Taxotere. It is a plant alkaloid and an anti-microtubule in terms of drug classification. Is is incredibly potent and is only given via IV every 3 weeks. Most other chemotherapy drugs are given weekly. As with all other chemo regimens Taxotere can result in temporary hair loss, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sores in the mouth and stomach bleeding. Taxotere can also result in permanent alopecia.
