Answer

Antineoplastics, Antimicrotubular

Antimicrotubular antineoplastic agents prevent cell growth and proliferation. They work by enhancing tubulin dimers, stabilizing existing microtubules, and inhibiting their disassembly.

Paclitaxel (Taxol)

The mechanisms of action of paclitaxel are tubulin polymerization and microtubule stabilization. This agent also participates in the breakage of chromosomes and modulation of immune response.
