I have no experience with the drug but I did have Sanofi-aventis at my UsTOO group last month to talk about
it. They're calling the first 2nd line chemotherapy drug. This suggests that you will be starting with Taxotere and then later Cabazataxel. My oncologist also spoke about
it as well at our group and indicated that it is indeed more effective than just Taxotere. I am still awaiting someone to come here with the experience but I know a few men considering it.
