Brain metastasis is a common complication of advanced malignancies, especially, lung cancer, breast cancer, renal cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Traditionally surgery, when indicated, and radiation therapy, either as whole-brain radiation therapy or stereotactic radiosurgery, constituted the major treatment options for brain metastases. Until recently, most of the systemic chemotherapy agents had limited activity for brain metastases. However, with the advent of small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors and ...
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT) are effective treatments for management of brain metastases. Prospective trials comparing the 2 modalities in patients with fewer than 4 brain metastases demonstrate that overall survival (OS) is similar. Intracranial failure is more common after SRS, while WBRT is associated with neurocognitive decline. As technology has advanced, fewer technical obstacles remain for treating patients with 4 or more brain metastases with SRS, but leve...
Brain metastasis is becoming increasingly prevalent in breast cancer due to improved extra-cranial disease control. With emerging availability of modern image-guided radiation platforms, mouse models of brain metastases and small animal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), we examined brain metastases' responses from radiotherapy in the pre-clinical setting. In this study, we employed half brain irradiation to reduce inter-subject variability in metastases dose-response evaluations.
Surgery for brain metastases aims to reduce mass effect and achieve local control through maximizing resection. There is increasing recognition that awake craniotomy (AC) is especially relevant for resection of brain metastases in eloquent areas. This study seeks to examine the neurological outcomes of using AC for brain metastases resection.
Post-operative radiation therapy for brain metastases (BM) has become standard treatment. Concerns regarding the deleterious cognitive effects of Whole Brain Radiation Therapy spurred a trend to use focal therapies such as stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). The purpose of this study was to prospectively evaluate the neuropsychological effects following post-resection SRS treatment since limited data exist in this context.
Until 50% of patients with renal cancer or melanoma, develop brain metastases during the course of their disease. Stereotactic radiotherapy has become a standard of care for patients with a limited number of brain metastases. Given the radioresistant nature of melanoma and renal cancer, optimization of the fractionation of stereotactic radiotherapy is needed. The purpose of this retrospective study was to elucidate if hypofractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (HFSRT) impacts local control of brain metastas...
Mono-isocentric volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) can be used to treat multiple brain metastases. It remains unknown whether mono-isocentric VMAT can improve the dose distribution compared with dual-isocentric dynamic conformal arc therapy (DCAT), especially for two brain metastases. We compared the dose distribution between dual-isocentric DCAT and mono-isocentric VMAT for two large brain metastases, and analyzed the relationship between the distance between the two targets and the difference in dose...
The role of brain FDG-PET in patients with lung cancer and brain metastases remains unclear. Here, we sought to determine the prognostic significance of whole-body PET/CT plus brain PET/MR in predicting the time to neurological progression (nTTP) and overall survival (OS) in this patient group.
Currently no firm consensus exists regarding utilization of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) alone versus whole brain radiation (WBRT) ± SRS in patients with multiple brain metastases. The International Gamma Knife Research Foundation conducted a survey to review international practice patterns.
Brain metastases commonly manifest in cancer patients, with approximately 20-50% presenting with one intracranial lesion. Among patients with one, small brain metastasis and controlled or absent extracranial disease, it remains unclear if aggressive intracranial management utilizing neurosurgical resection and cavity stereotactic radiation (SRS/SRT) rather than SRS/SRT alone is beneficial. In patients with controlled or absent extracranial disease and one brain metastasis ≤2 cm in size, we evaluated the i...
Metastases from prostate cancer to the brain are very unusual and very few case series have been reported in the literature. Present study was performed to assess the proportion of brain metastasis from prostate cancer among other brain metastasis in men, to evaluate the distribution, pattern and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appearance of these metastatic lesions, and prognosis of brain metastasis in patients with prostate cancer.
Brain metastases are a common cause of disabling neurologic complications and death in patients with metastatic melanoma. Previous studies of nivolumab combined with ipilimumab in metastatic melanoma have excluded patients with untreated brain metastases. We evaluated the efficacy and safety of nivolumab plus ipilimumab in patients with melanoma who had untreated brain metastases.
To determine if there are any changes in brain metastases or resection cavity volumes between planning magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and radiosurgical (RS) treatment and if these led to a change in management or alteration in the RS plan.
Brain metastasis occurs in ~30% of patients with breast cancer, and patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) breast cancer have a particularly high frequency of brain metastasis. Weighted gene co-expression network analysis was conducted to identify the hub differentially expressed genes from patients with HER2 breast cancer between brain metastases and primary tumors. The potential candidate genes were investigated in another set of patient samples to confirm their relevance. The resul...
Brain metastases are devastating complications of cancer. The blood-brain barrier (BBB), which protects the normal brain, morphs into an inadequately characterized blood-tumor barrier (BTB) when brain metastases form, and is surrounded by a neuroinflammatory response. These structures contribute to poor therapeutic efficacy by limiting drug uptake. Here, we report that experimental breast cancer brain metastases of low- and high permeability to a dextran dye exhibit distinct microenvironmental gene expressi...
Multifraction stereotactic radiosurgery (MF-SRS) purportedly reduces radionecrosis risk over single fraction SRS (SF-SRS) in the treatment of large brain metastases. The purpose of the current work is to compare local control (LC) and radionecrosis rates of SF-SRS and MF-SRS in the definitive (SF-SRS and MF-SRS) and postoperative (SF-SRS and MF-SRS) settings.
Approximately 30-50% of advanced HER2-positive breast cancer patients will develop central nervous system (CNS) metastases, with an annual risk of around 10%, and a half of them will die from brain progression. An increased risk of brain metastases is also seen in patients with early HER2-positive breast cancer administered curative therapy. Brain metastases in HER2-positive breast cancer patients usually constitute the first site of recurrence. The administration of anti-HER2 monoclonal antibodies, trastuz...
Preclinical studies have suggested that radiation therapy (RT) enhances antitumor immune response and can act synergistically when administered with immunotherapy. However, this effect in melanoma brain metastasis is not well studied. We aim to explore the clinical effect of combining RT and immunotherapy in patients with melanoma brain metastasis (MBM).
Nearly half of melanoma patients develop brain metastases during the course of their disease. Despite advances in both localized radiation and systemic immunotherapy, brain metastases remain difficult to treat, with most patients surviving less than 5 months from the time of diagnosis. While both treatment regimens have individually shown considerable promise in treating metastatic melanoma, there is interest in combining these strategies to take advantage of potential synergy. In order to study the abilit...
Immune-checkpoint blockers (ICBs) significantly prolong overall survival (OS) in patients with advanced melanoma. Limited data are available on the efficacy and clinical benefit in patients with melanoma brain metastases (MBMs). The aim of this study was to determine whether ICB is active in an unselected cohort treated of patients with known brain metastases and if disease control correlates with the survival.
Brain metastases (BM) are rare in colorectal cancer (CRC) and are associated with a dismal prognosis. This work aims to report the rate of BM in CRC patients treated in a single institution, along with survival and prognostic factors.
Papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most common thyroid malignancy and usually has an indolent clinical course with a good prognosis. Brain metastasis from thyroid cancer is very rare, occurring in only 0.8-1.3% of all papillary thyroid carcinomas; therefore, the prognosis and treatment of the metastatic tumor are unclear. We describe 5 cases of brain metastases from papillary thyroid carcinoma treated with surgery between 2013 and 2017. Intracranial tumor resection was performed and brain metastases were pa...
To design a tool to predict the probability of new cerebral lesions after stereotactic radiosurgery/radiotherapy for patients with 1-3 brain metastases from colorectal cancer.
Element-specific biokinetic models are used to reconstruct doses to systemic tissues from internal emitters. Typically, a systemic model for a radionuclide explicitly depicts only its dominant repositories. Remaining tissues and fluids are aggregated into a pool called Other tissue in which the radionuclide is assumed to be uniformly distributed. In the systemic biokinetic models used in radiation protection, the brain usually is addressed as an implicit mass fraction of Other tissue rather than an explicit...
