brain metastases from lung cancer
The Doctor. Marcos Oliveira, pulmonologist at the Local Health Unit in Guarda, was one of the speakers at the Spring Meeting of the Lung Cancer Study Group (GECP).
The subject presented by the specialist was the brain metastasis of small cell lung cancer, the effect of systemic therapy and the conclusions presented are related to the “promising role that immunotherapy seems to have in the response of these patients”. However, for the specialist “the role of immunotherapy is still not strongly recommended, hence the importance of always taking these patients to a multidisciplinary meeting”.
