Better chemotherapy through targeted delivery

October 26, 2014

Every year, about 100,000 Americans are diagnosed with brain tumors that have spread from elsewhere in the body. These tumors, known as metastases, are usually treated with surgery followed by chemotherapy, but the cancer often returns. With collaborators at Brigham and Women's and Johns Hopkins, MIT researchers have developed a means to deliver chemotherapy directly into the brain cavity; see the MIT News Office for the full story.
