Drug Eluting Beads

This therapy involves the administration of beads that have been impregnated with the chemotherapy agent. The drug eluting beads are given via catheter directly to the liver tumor. Giving chemotherapy with the beads may provide an additional benefit as the chemotherapy is slowly released from the beads, destroying the tumor over a greater period of time.
