New guidelines on staging of paediatric cancers

New Paediatric Non-Stage Prognosticator Guidelines & an update of 2014 Toronto Stage Guidelines by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) & partners have been published. 

The guidelines were developed by a panel of international experts and stakeholders during a meeting held at IARC, covering the collection of standardized information, which facilitates the interpretation and comparison of data on survival and mortality across regions and over time. The panel also reviewed and updated the 2014 Toronto Paediatric Cancer Stage Guidelines.
