Using polymers to deliver chemotherapy to brain tumours

Dr Ruman Rahman of the CBTRC talks about a study he led which found that a polymer originally designed to help mend broken bones could be successful in delivering chemotherapy drugs directly to the brains of patients suffering from brain tumours. (Read   press release.)

Intrathecal chemotherapy to treat brain tumours

Professor David Walker of the CBTRC talks about intrathecal chemotherapy which is a way to give chemotherapy directly into the CSF via a port. Professor Walker explains how they are currently using this method of treatment on brain tumour patients and how they are collecting research along the way. We also hear from patients Peter and Alex who are currently receiving intrathecal chemotherapy.
