Report of an international workshop to standardize repsonse criteria for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. J Clin Oncol. 1999; 17: 1244-53.
Although the 1999 IWG-NHL guidelines have been used widely and are accepted for response assessment of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas (NHL), the intent of the more recent 2007 IWG-NHL guidelines was to replace the earlier guidelines as the preferred criteria to be used for future clinical trials. Refer to the 2007 IWG-NHL for current recommendations on the assessment of lymphoma in clinical trials.
