Clinical outcomes of etoposide and cytarabine as consolidation in elderly patients with primary CNS lymphoma

CONCLUSION: EA consolidation chemotherapy for transplant-ineligible, elderly patients with PCNSL improved response rates but showed a high relapse rate and short progression-free survival. The incidences of treatment-related mortality caused by hematologic toxicities and severe infections were very high, even after dose modification. Therefore, the use of EA consolidation should be reconsidered in elderly patients with PCNSL.PMID:38581718 | DOI:10.1093/oncolo/oyae059
