Pharmacokinetics of Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapies in the Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) of Patients With Advanced Cancer

This clinical trial is being done to learn more about how different types of cancer treatments affect cancer cells when they spread to the brain. Many cancer treatments are not able to make their way into the brain or into spinal fluid of the central nervous system. This is because they cannot cross what is called the "blood-brain barrier" or "BBB". The BBB is like a protective shield that only allows certain materials pass through to reach the brain but not others. This study ...
