br CONCLUSIONS br Giving post SRS
Giving post-SRS systemic therapy to patients with Etoposide metas-tases and controlled extracranial disease may be an effective prophylaxis to reduce the risk of future brain relapse. The benefits of this approach on patients’ quality of life must be weighed against the costs of drug toxicity and the financial burden of treatment. Future studies should compare different treatment types to see if particular drug classes are more effective at reducing relapse risk and death. Additional randomized prospective trials are needed to further delineate the role of systemic therapy after SRS.
