A randomized trial of surgery in the treatment of single metastases to the brain.
It is concluded that patients with cancer and a single metastasis to the brain who receive treatment with surgical resection plus radiotherapy live longer, have fewer recurrences of cancer in the brain, and have a better quality of life than similar patients treated with radiotherapy alone.
Reoperation for glioblastoma.
Reoperation is most likely to produce the best result when the KR is at least 60 and the interval between operations is longer than 6 months and the study indicates that reoperation should not be carried out when theKR is less than 60.
On using the linear-quadratic model in daily clinical practice.
Intracranial ependymoma: Results of radiotherapy at the University of Kentucky
The data and a literature review indicate that radical radiotherapy of the ependymoma produces good patient survival; the ependedymoblastoma is not adequately controlled withradical radiotherapy alone and adjuvant therapy may be necessary.

Accelerated fractionation radiotherapy for hospitalized glioblastoma multiforme patients with poor prognostic factors
AF schedules should continue to be explored since they may be more appropriate than conventional fractionation schedules for GBM patients with poor prognostic factors, particularly when hospitalized.
