AbstractOBJECTIVE:Animal and human studies have shown increased delivery of radiolabeled compounds across the blood-brain-tumor barrier using intra-arterial (IA) Cereport (RMP-7; Alkermes Inc., Cambridge, MA) with a radiolabeled tracer. This present study assesses the safety, tolerance, and preliminary efficacy of the IA administration of carboplatin with Cereport.METHODS:An open-label dose escalation study of IA Cereport (10-300 ng/kg) with 100 mg of IA carboplatin was conducted in 11 patients with recurrent malignant gliomas and 1 patient treated adjuvantly after radiation therapy. Tumor size and laboratory and clinical statuses were assessed.RESULTS:Adverse events were mainly neurological in nature and corresponded to the anatomic location of the tumor.
