Most malignant gliomas grow despite treatment by standard chemotherapeutic agents. The authors explored the use of an innovative drug, 4-hydroperoxycyclophosphamide (4HC), delivered via a controlled-release biodegradable polymer to determine whether local delivery would enhance efficacy. This drug is an alkylator-type chemotherapeutic agent derived from(More)
