The Pharmacology of Xenobiotics after Intracerebro Spinal Fluid Administration: Implications for the Treatment of Brain Tumors

Abstract : The incidence of brain metastasis has been increasing for 10 years, with poor prognosis, unlike the improvement in survival for extracranial tumor localizations. Since recent advances in molecular biology and the development of specific molecular targets, knowledge of the brain distribution of drugs has become a pharmaceutical challenge. Most anticancer drugs fail to cross the blood–brain barrier. In order to get around this problem and penetrate the brain parenchyma, the use of intrathecal administration has been developed, but the mechanisms governing drug distribution from the cerebrospinal fluid to the brain parenchyma are poorly understood. Thus, in this review we discuss the pharmacokinetics of drugs after intrathecal administration, their penetration of the brain parenchyma and the different systems causing their efflux from the brain to the blood.
