10-Deacetyl Baccatin III or 10-DAB III is a crucial intermediate for Paclitaxel & Docitaxel, two important anti-cancer drugs. Natural Paclitaxel was once isolated in very small quantities from the Yew tree (Taxus species) resulting in the large-scale destruction of its natural habitat. By extracting the pre-cursor 10-DAB III in large quantites from the Taxus baccata leaf, many subsequent semi-syntheses can be carried out. The esterification of 10-DAB III also causes an enhancement in the kinetics, and therefore the pharmacological profile of these important chemo-therapeutic agents.

At Himachal Pharmaceuticals we manufacture 10 DAB III USP as per United States Pharmacopoeia standards . It is only available for bulk requirements as Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients for the Pharmaceutical or Drug manufacturing companies, agents or other industrial bulk consumers.
