Recommendations for Implementing Assessment Criteria Guidelines in Lymphoma and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Clinical Trials

Perceptive Informatics

Standardized assessment criteria are becoming increasingly important in obtaining valid outcomes in oncology clinical trials. While standardized criteria encourage a more uniform approach to assessing clinical trial data, they are often subject to the interpretation of the user. These differences in interpretation, while seemingly minor, can have a major impact on assessments. The most commonly used standardized criteria for lymphoma have been no exception. Differences such as minimum new lesion size, lymph node normalization size requirements, inclusion of extranodal lesions and assessment of organomegaly can have a profound effect on overall response. Additionally, heightened scrutiny of the assessment criteria used in a given protocol can lead to questions about a drug’s efficacy if not applied correctly according to regulators’ interpretation.
