The Application of RECIST and IrRC in Oncology Clinical Trials



Oncology clinical trial endpoints such as progression free survival (PFS), objective response rate (ORR) and clinical benefit rate (CBR) require accurate disease assessments over time. This webinar will discuss two of the most commonly used disease assessment criteria Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors version 1.1 (RECIST 1.1) and Immune-Related Response Criteria (IrRC). First, an overview of RECIST 1.1 and IrRC will be presented. Then the detailed criteria for each assessment method will be discussed with multiple examples of lesion measurements to support the use of each method.

Learning Objectives

The objectives of this webinar are:

  1. The ability to categorize baseline tumor lesions for RECIST 1.1 and IrRC.
  2. Calculation of the tumor assessments in RECIST 1.1 and IrRC.
  3. Determination of objective tumor response in RECIST 1.1 and IrRC including new lesions.
  4. Overall response and confirmation in RECIST 1.1 and IrRC and other special notes
  5. The use of RECIST 1.1 and IrRC objective tumor response in time to event analysis.
