Despite the high therapeutic potential of many macromolecular drugs, it has proven difficult to apply them to treatment of cancer and other degenerative diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) due to low capillary permeability and low diffusivity. To overcome these barriers, recent experimental studies have shown local infusion, i.e., convection-enhanced delivery (CED), to be a promising delivery technique in the brain and spinal cord [1–3]. Predictive models of extracellular fluid flow and transport during CED would be useful for treatment optimization and planning.
