A Review on Brain Metastases Prognostic Scoring Systems

August 23, 2021 Medicine and Medical 0

The most prevalent intracranial tumours are brain metastases (BMs), and about 25% of all cancer patients are identified with this poor prognostic illness condition at some point throughout their therapy. The primary prevailing treatment options normally include palliative radiotherapy, chemotherapy, targeted medicines, immunotherapy, optimum supportive care, and surgery in select patients, depending on the possible patient’s general well-being status. Previous research has shown that prognostic scoring methods can be used to group BM patients into specific prognostic groups based on realistic combinations of several patient- and tumor-related characteristics. Such frameworks could be effective in accurately predicting survival outcomes and selecting the best-fit treatment option. The goal of this study was to look at the benefits and drawbacks of the widely used on-the-spot prognostic grading systems for BMs, as well as their clinical use.
