Treatment: New 'spray on' chemo offers hope

13 Jan 2020 - Treatment

New ‘spray on’ chemotherapy being tested in Melbourne is giving fresh hope to cancer patients. The therapy administers cancer-fighting drugs directly to the tumour site using an aerosol spray instead of being injected into the bloodstream. Epworth HealthCare and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre – funded through the Epworth Medical foundation – are testing the chemotherapy spray on patients with peritoneal cancer from bowel cancer who had not responded to chemotherapy.
