This is a clinical practice guideline for fever of unknown origin (FUO) in adult neutropenic patients. The guideline updates recommendations for diagnosis and empirical therapy of these patients in light of the challenges of antimicrobial stewardship. Specific recommendations are provided for taking down patient history and performing a physical examination, ordering chest radiograph, and taking nasal/pharyngeal (MRSA) or rectal (VRE) swabs.

This is a clinical practice guideline for patients with multiple myeloma. The guideline provides recommendations for the treatment of both newly diagnosed and relapsed patients. Outcomes of interest include overall survival, progression-free survival, response rate, and quality of life.
This is a clinical practice guideline for patients with colorectal cancer. The guideline examines tumour budding as a prognostic factor in these patients. The definition of tumour budding, clinical scenarios and tumour budding, H&E and immunohistochemistry for the tumour budding score, intratumoural and peritumoural budding, field number and size for the tumour budding score, cut-offs and continuous scale for the tumour budding score, and reporting tumour budding are all discussed.
This is a clinical practice guideline on the role and appropriateness of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography - computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) for initial breast cancer staging and its therapeutic and prognostic impact. Recommendations are stratified by risk, and outcomes of interest include sensitivity, specificity, change in stage compared to staging done by conventional imaging, prognosis, and costs. The guideline also addresses the association of metabolic information with biology and prognosis.
This is a clinical practice guideline for women with uterine cancer. The guideline provides recommendations for the screening and prevention of uterine cancer in the general population and in high risk groups, as well as for the pathological work-up, management, and follow-up of patients with uterine cancer. Specific conditions discussed include endometrioid endometrial cancer, as well as non-endometrioid cancers such as uterine serous carcinoma, uterine clear cell carcinoma, and uterine carcinosarcoma.
This is a clinical practice guideline for patients with epithelial ovarian-type cancers (e.g. ovary, fallopian tube or peritoneal origin) and borderline tumours. This guideline addresses epithelial cancers of varying histological subtypes. The guideline covers the full continuum of care including screening and prevention, diagnosis, treatment options such as surgery, systemic therapy and chemotherapy, follow-up, as well as management of recurrent disease. The guideline also highlights the support needs for women with ovarian cancer.
This is a clinical practice guideline for the management of stage I to III melanoma in adult patients. The guideline discusses classification, resection margins, sentinel node biopsy, adjuvant treatments, initial work-up, follow-up, and the role of molecular biology tests. The guideline also compares the recommendations provided by other European guidelines and addresses any disparities in recommendations.
This is a clinical practice guideline for the management of patients with advanced breast cancer (ABC), including those with locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) and metastatic breast cancer (MBC). The guideline provides recommendations for the management of these patients, and specifically discusses the use of chemotherapy, management of bone metastases, management of cancer related fatigue, as well as supportive and palliative care.
This is a clinical practice guideline for patients with T-cell lymphoma. The guideline examines the diagnostic workup, staging, treatment, follow-up, and supportive care for the most common subtypes of T-cell lymphoma. These subtypes include peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs), breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sezary syndrome (SS), primary cutaneous CD30+ T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders, T-cell large granular lymphocytic leukemia (TGLL), adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL), T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (TPLL), and extranodal NK/T-cell lymphomas (ENKL), nasal type.
This is a clinical practice guideline for the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs). The guideline discusses the diagnosis of GISTs using radiology, histology and molecular biology, while also providing recommendations for the treatment of both localized and advanced disease. Surgery, adjuvant and neoadjuvant treatment options are specifically examined.
