Baxter and Jain, based on the theoretical framework in their 1D mathematical model, found that in addition to blood flow heterogeneities, some parameters such as interstitial fluid pressure (IFP) and interstitial fluid velocity (IFV) have important role in drugs delivery (Jain & Hartley, 1984; Baxter & Jain, 1990, 1991a).
Tissue perfusion is proportional to the difference between the interstitial fluid pressure and the capillary perfusion pressure.
This increased interstitial fluid pressure causes interstitial-to-venous fluid transport to dominate over arterial-to-interstitial fluid transport, illustrated conceptually in Figure 5.
To overcome this shortcoming, I here propose to use corticosteroid-containing nanomedicines, targeted to tumour-associated macrophages (TAM), to inhibit pro-inflammatory and pro-angiogenic signalling by TAM, and to thereby homogenize the tumour vasculature, increase tumour perfusion and reduce the interstitial fluid pressure. As a result of this, the tumour accumulation, intratumoural distribution and antitumour efficacy of subsequently administered chemotherapeutics, as well as of radiotherapy (because of enhanced oxygen delivery) can be substantially improved.
The interstitial fluid pressure (IFP) determines the drug exchange between interstitial fluid and blood plasma, as well as tumour and normal tissues.
