Example text

While there will remain a place for objective anatomical tumor response as an end point for some time in the future, the added value (or perhaps even the replacement value) of functional changes in tumor metabolism, blood flow, or other functional imaging studies requires further evaluation to standardize the description of results of trials that incorporate these measures and to determine the settings in which these modalities are most useful for drug development and patient care (37,38). Because cytostatic drugs may be erroneously defined as active on the basis of stable disease rate in an uncontrolled trial, as stable disease may be due to either inherent tumor growth kinetics or potential drug effect (35), there has been a much greater emphases on utilizing randomized controlled trials to evaluate the potential antitumor effects of these agents.
