Dr Kévin Beccaria - Hôpital Necker, Paris, France

Dr Beccaria talks to ecancertv at Children with Cancer UK’s workshop on Drug Delivery in Paediatric Brain Tumours in London, UK.

In the interview he discusses how local delivery of pulsed ultrasound could help optimise drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB).

Dr Beccaria notes there have been many preclinical studies showing that the technology works and that the first clinical trial assessing BBB disruption with an implantable ultrasound device is now underway in adults with glioblastoma.
