Prof David Walker - University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK

Prof Walker 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 the use of intrathecal therapy in children with medulloblastoma.

In particular he discusses the findings of a literature review looking at the range of drugs that may be suitable for intrathecal administration.

The analysis found 126 candidate drugs of which only 12 were selected as eligible for further clinical investigation at this point. A further 15 were thought probably for further pre-clinical investigation.
