They had some laboratory evidence that large doses of corticosteroids would inhibit the growth of experimental brain tumors. They gave high doses of corticosteroids to 14 brain tumor patients in conjunction with angiography and promptly observed that within 24 h the patients were remarkably improved in a way that could not be explained by any chemotherapeutic effect. They used dexamethasone, which had first been synthesized in 1958, because it had a low index of sodium and water retention compared to the other corticosteroids then available.
