Cancer is one of the most destructive and lethal illnesses of the modern civilization. In the last decades, clinical cancer research shifted towards molecular targeted therapies which have limited side e�ects in comparison to conventional chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Anti-angiogenic therapy is one of the most promising cancer treatment methods. The dynamical model for tumor growth under angiogenic stimulator/inhibitor control was posed by Hahnfeldt et al. (1999), and it was investigated and partly modi�ed many times. In this paper, a modi�ed version of the originally published model is used in order to describe a continuous infusion therapy. To generalize individualized therapies a robust control method is proposed using H 1 methodology. Uncertainty weighting functions are determined based on the real pathophysiological case and simulations are performed on di�erent tumor volumes to demonstrate the robustness of the proposed method.
