This multicenter clinical trial is evaluating the safety of using focused ultrasound to temporarily and reversibly open the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in glioblastoma patients undergoing standard chemotherapy treatment.
Researchers hope that disrupting the BBB will enhance the delivery of chemotherapy to the tumor site.
