ISRS delivers its 133rd Webinar

Since we launched our webinar program in Oct. 2016 we have delivered webinars on a fortnightly basis covering important topics related to intracranial and body SRS. These have become increasingly popular during the pandemic, attracting hundreds of registrants. We have now completed more than 120 webinars. This has been made possible due to the generosity of the speakers who have given their time to present high level lectures. Members can access recordings of all of the webinars via our website: Access the library here.

The recent clinical application of immune checkpoint inhibitors has substantially improved the prognosis of advanced cancer patients in various malignancies. With prolonged survival, how to control metastatic brain tumors and maintain the quality of a patient's life has become more important than ever before. However, the extent to which the combination of stereotactic radiotherapy with immune checkpoint inhibitors improves prognosis, enhances local therapeutic efficacy, or increases treatment-related toxicity remains to be fully elucidated. In this review, we first provide a brief overview of the molecular mechanisms of immune checkpoint inhibitors. Next, currently available evidence from clinical trials of immune checkpoint inhibitors will be summarized. Finally, we will present clinical data on the combination of stereotactic radiotherapy and immune checkpoint inhibitors for brain metastases, including data from our experience.
