  • Long-term follow-up of our initial cohort confirms the observation of excellent overall survival, particularly for those patients younger than age 60 at diagnosis. For older patients, it appears to be reasonable to defer whole brain radiotherapy in an effort to minimize treatment-related neurotoxicity.
