RECIST Criteria and Their Impact on Safety and Efficacy Reporting in Oncology Studies  
Response evaluation criteria in solid tumors (RECIST) define whether patients in oncology studies are improving, stable or worsening during treatment. These criteria have a direct impact on visualizations such as swimmer plots, spider plots and progression free survival. Additionally, they create complexity when creating serious adverse event narratives. Join us and learn how JMP® Clinical handles all of these issues and more.

Meet the SAS Expert:

Geoff Mann , JMP Product Manager for Health and Life Sciences, SAS

In his role, Mann explores needs for visual and statistical discovery software in the clinical segment of the pharmaceutical and health care industries. After joining SAS in 2000, he helped develop software for use in health and life sciences, including SAS Drug Development, SAS Clinical Data Integration, SAS Clinical Toolkit and JMP Genomics.
