Taxol is a novel chemotherapeutic agent that has produced substantial responses in early clinical studies . Taxol has excellent activity in a number of malignancies based on recently completed clinical trials, including a 30% response rate in platinum-refractory ovarian cancer patients [2-5]. We are currently conducting trials of dose-intense taxol with granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) support in relapsed or refractory ovarian cancer patients. Such dose intensification produces a major response rate in 50% of patients with this disease . Taxol was supplied in 5 ml ampules (6 mg/ml) in polyethoxylated castor oil (Cremophor EL) 50% and dehydrated alcohol and the dose was diluted in either 0.9% sodium chloride or 5% dextrose at concentrations of 0.6 to 1.2 mg/ml. We have noted 3 patients with previously unreported cutaneous manifestations which we believe are taxol related and also report our overall complication rate with the administration of taxol by peripheral intravenous lines.
