Experimental: Group 1,Intra-pemetrexed, radiotherapy
The treatment regimen consisted of intrathecal chemotherapy (via lumbar puncture, pemetrexed 10 mg, plus dexamethasone 5 mg, once per week, 5-8 times, 4-7 weeks in total) and radiotherapy. Radiotherapy consisted of fractionated, conformal radiation given at a daily dose of 2 Gy. The planning volume consisted of sites of symptomatic disease, bulky disease observed on magnetic resonance imaging, including the whole brain and basis cranii received 40 Gy in 20 fractions, 4 weeks in total, and/or segment of spinal canal received 40-50 Gy.
Pemetrexed, 10 mg,intrathecal injection, plus dexamethasone 5 mg, once per week, 5 to 8 times, 4 to 7 weeks in total.
Dexamethasone, 5 mg, intrathecal injection, simultaneously with pemetrexed, once per week, 5 to 8 times, 4 to 7 weeks in total.
The sites of symptomatic disease, bulky disease observed on MRI, including the whole brain and basis cranii, 40 Gy in 20 fractions;and/or segment of spinal canal received 40-50 Gy in 20-25 fractions.
- Incidence of treatment-related adverse events [ Time Frame: The evaluation was performed at 3 months after the end of treatment or when patient died. ]The incidence of treatment-related adverse events were measured for determing tolerability and safety. Adverse events (AEs) are evaluated according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE, version 3.0). Events of grade 3-5 are defined as moderate and severe adverse events.
- Clinical response rate [ Time Frame: The evaluation was performed at 3 months after the end of treatment or when patient died. ]The clinical response rate will be determined based on the evaluation criteria which have been established and published on the previous paper by the investigators (Pan Z, et al. Int J Cancer. 2016;139:1864-72). This evaluation criteria were mainly based on two factors, including improvement of neurologic symptoms/signs and changes of Karnofsky Performance Status.
- Neurological progression-free survival [ Time Frame: The evaluation was performed at 3 months after the end of treatment or when patient died. ]The neurological progression-free survival is defined as the time elapsed between treatment initiation and neurological progression. The neurological progression was determined based on the evaluation criteria which have been established and published on the previous paper by the investigators (Pan Z, et al. Int J Cancer. 2016;139:1864-72). This criteria was mainly based on the evaluation of neurologic symptoms/signs.
