CODE 2.2     Stable or static disease

No change in measurable lesions qualifying as partial response or progression and no evidence of new lesions.

CODE 2.3     Progressive disease

An increase by at least 25% of the sum of the products of the maximum diameter and a perpendicular diameter of any measurable lesion, or the appearance of new lesions.

CODE 9.0     Not stated/inadequately described

The tumour was assessed but the percentage of increase or decrease in the tumour size is not stated or is inadequately described.
