Full guidance on the use of paclitaxel in the treatment of ovarian cancer

This document shows the full guidance on the use of the use of paclitaxel in the treatment of ovarian cancer.

This guidance has been partially updated by ‘Paclitaxel, pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride and topotecan for second-line or subsequent treatment of advanced ovarian cancer (review)’ (NICE technology appraisal guidance 91 [TA91]).


Recommendations 1.3, 1.4 and 1.5 of TA55 on re-challenge therapy and the second-line treatment of advanced ovarian cancer have been replaced. The recommendations for first-line treatment still stand. See TA91 (www.nice.org.uk/guidance/TA91) for details of the new recommendations and evidence considered.
