Better control of systemic disease and more aggressive treatments have led to
enhanced survival in patients with CNS metastasis. Little focus, however, has been
placed on the long-term control of CNS metastasis and the impact of such control
on the patient. This symposium will examine interventions, controversies, and late
effects associated with long-term control of central nervous system metastasis. The
symposium will also focus on biology of glioma and potential for innovative therapeutic
approaches to treatment of glioblastoma. Discuss the roles of surgery, radiation
therapy and systemic therapy in treatment of gliomas.
1. Discuss the roles of surgery, radiation therapy and systemic therapy in the long-term

3. Discuss the biology of glioma and potential for innovative therapeutic approaches
in treatment of gliomas.
4. Discuss the roles of surgery, radiation therapy and systemic therapy in treatment
