about this item

Anticancer Drugs: Navelbine® and Taxotère®: Nature, Chemistry and Cancer provides an overview of how the French research system facilitated the discovery of the two molecules, Navelbine and Taxotere, and their anticancer activity. Although the story of taxol is notorious, very little is known about Navelbine (semi-synthetic Taxol) and Taxotère. Nothing has been written on the history of the genesis of Navelbine and Taxotère or the contribution of French chemists to their discovery.

  • Provides an overview of how the French research system facilitated the discovery of the two molecules, Navelbine and Taxotere, and their anticancer activity
  • Based on a collaboration between a chemist and an historian of science, technology and innovation
  • Offers a unique perspective, bringing together the specific knowledge and skills of chemistry and history
  • Embeds chemistry in the general history thereby opening a window on science in action
