Therapy of brain tumors has been limited by lack of effective methods of drug delivery. Systemic administration often fails to achieve therapeutic concentrations of drugs within intracranial tumors despite toxic systemic levels. This article discusses new methods for delivering therapeutic agents to brain tumors, including intra-arterial, intrathecal, intraventricular, and interstitial administration techniques.
