Is CNS prophylaxis warranted in DLBCL?

Wilson discusses the topic of CNS relapse in DLBCL and explains that there is a lack of data in support of a clear prophylactic treatment strategy. Wilson summarizes the latest data for the use of high-dose methotrexate and describes how it is may be used sparingly. Advancements in novel molecular techniques to screen patients at baseline for CNS disease hold great promise for guiding future prophylactic treatment regimens.
