Brief Summary:
The purpose of this non-interventional study is to collect data on the efficacy and safety of Nab-Paclitaxel in the routine application.

Condition or disease
Metastatic Breast Cancer

Detailed Description:

The main focus of this non-interventional study is set on answering the following questions:

  • Can the results observed in controlled clinical trials regarding efficacy and safety be reproduced in the routine clinical setting?
  • Are the side-effects of nab-paclitaxel therapy observed in this study comparable to the previously described safety-profile in terms of frequency and intensity?
  • What are the main reasons for modification or termination of the nab-paclitaxel therapy?
  • How does nab-paclitaxel therapy influence the patients' quality of life?
  • What are the criteria for selecting nab-paclitaxel as therapy for metastatic breast cancer?
