Further study details as provided by Onkovis GmbH:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • the quantity of Paclitaxel onkovis needed pro treatment cycle [ Time Frame: the time the participants will be followed depends on the number of treatment cycles; that means the time frame may extend up to 24 weeks (8 cycles). ]
    Determine the quantity of Paclitaxel onkovis needed pro treatment cycle

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • adverse events during and after treatment in comparison to Docetaxel onkovis [ Time Frame: up to 24 weeks (8 cycles) ]
    The number and kind of adverse events during and after the intra-venous application of Paclitaxel will be assessed, documented and compared to those of Docetaxel.
