Abstract

The development of effective chemotherapy for central nervous system tumors is hampered by the blood-brain barrier and by limited drug diffusion in the brain tissue. BAY 59-8862 is a new taxane analog that was selected and developed for its activity against tumors with a P-glycoprotein-mediated, multidrug-resistant phenotype. Because P-glycoprotein is implicated in limiting the access of drugs to central nervous system tumor targets, the objective of this study was to evaluate the ability of intravenously administered BAY 59-8862 to affect the growth of central nervous system tumors.
