Methodology & Statistical Analysis

 Antiemetic Guidelines
The MASCC/ESMO Antiemetic Guidelines have been updated in English as of April, 2010. The guidelines are available in ten languages, obtained by the standard forward/backward translation process. Translations of the updated guidelines will be available soon.

MASCC Antiemesis Tool (MAT) -more>>
The MASCC Antiemesis Tool (MAT) was developed by members of MASCC to assist patients and oncology professionals in communicating accurately about the prevention and control of nausea and vomiting that may occur with chemotherapy.  The concept of the MAT is to provide an easy-to-use and easy-to-evaluate tool to assist in providing the best individual care to patients.  Additionally, the tool will aid treatment centers in understanding the effectiveness of their antiemetic strategies.

MASCC published the first Antiemetic Guidelines in the 6th issue of Supportive Care in Cancer, 1998.  The articles by Hesketh and Morrow summarize the Perugia Consensus Conference in the area of Methodology and Statistical Analysis.  A second Perugia Conference is planned for late spring 2004 to update the guidelines from 1997.
