Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Oncology Volume 04, Issue 06: Advances in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Benign and Malignant Brain Tumors.
The goals of this program are to improve management of brain metastases and review recent and ongoing research on immunotherapy for gliomas. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Compare the efficacy of different dosing strategies for whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) in the treatment of brain metastases.
2. Determine whether a patient with brain metastases is likely to benefit from the addition of radiosurgery or conventional surgery to WBRT.
3. Evaluate the effect of WBRT on neurocognitive function in patients with brain metastases.
4. Explain principles of immunology that are manipulated in new approaches to immunotherapy.
5. Recognize the advantages of a patient-specific in vivo approach to immunotherapeutic induction vaccination.
The original programs were presented by Roy A. Patchell, MD, Chair, Department of Neurology, University of Arizona-Phoenix College of Medicine, and Chair, Division of Neurology, Barrow Neurological Institute, St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, Phoenix, and David W. Andrews, MD, Professor of Neurological Surgery, Jefferson Medical College; Vice Chairman, Clinical Services, Department of Neurological Surgery and Chief, Division of Neuro-Oncology, Kimmel Cancer Center, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA.
