CTCAE

Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), developed by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the United States of America, is a regularly updated document that provides a standard chart for reporting the severity of adverse events occurring in cancer clinical trials. Despite its widespread use and its utility, the CTCAE has not been validated, and more specific scales may be used for some adverse events.
