Abstract

The local delivery of 5-fluorouracil by polymeric microspheres is a safe method with which to achieve sustained concentrations of a chemotherapeutic agent in the brain. Further clinical studies are needed to evaluate the effect of drug-loaded microspheres as radiosensitizers and antitumor agents.
