Carmustine can be given as an implant using thin discs (wafers) that contain the chemotherapy drug. These are called Gliadel® implants or you may hear them called Gliadel wafers. These can be used to treat some types of brain tumour. We have separate information about Gliadel wafers.
This information is about carmustine when it is given as a drip (infusion). It should ideally be read with our general information about chemotherapy and the type of cancer you have.
