Answer

NCCN recommendations are categorized as follows [20] :

  • Category 1: Based upon high-level evidence, there is uniform NCCN consensus that the intervention is appropriate

  • Category 2A: Based upon lower-level evidence, there is uniform NCCN consensus that the intervention is appropriate

  • Category 2B:Based upon lower-level evidence, there is NCCN consensus that the intervention is appropriate

  • Category 3: Based upon any level of evidence, there is major NCCN disagreement that the intervention is appropriate

All NCCN recommendations are category 2A unless otherwise noted.
