Abstract

Chemoembolization with drug-eluting particles has been recently introduced in the field of interventional oncology. In this review, we will describe the pharmacokinetic properties and efficacy of all commercially available or under investigation drug-eluting particles and discuss the potentials and future of this new form of transcatheter arterial therapy for liver cancer.
