Validation of an effective implantable pump-infusion system for chronic convection-enhanced delivery of intracerebral topotecan in a large animal model.
Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)
This is early - only in animals so far - but would be a major step forward int he fight against brain tumors. We have some effective treatments that have to be delivered by convection enhanced delivery, such as Toca 511 and PVSRIPO. These experimental treatments showed some remarkable results after just one (or 2) course of treatment. With this new technology, we could use these therapies on an ongoing basis and perhaps drastically increase their effectiveness!
