The purpose of the medical workshops was to receive guidance from Dr. Murphy, and to gain from his practical experience with neuroblastoma treatment, while providing an opportunity for an exchange of views between Dr. Murphy and the group of the local KOLs, regarding all the major aspects of high risk Neuroblastoma management.

About Neuroblastoma and Dinutuximab beta EUSA

Neuroblastoma is an orphan oncology condition with significant unmet medical need. It accounts for up to 10% of childhood tumors. Dinutuximab beta EUSA was used extensively across Europe under a managed access scheme before the EMA marketing authorization and is included in a number of treatment protocols for high-risk neuroblastoma.

Dinutuximab beta EUSA, an anti-GD2 monoclonal antibody, is indicated for children aged 12 months and above who have previously received induction chemotherapy and achieved at least a partial response, followed by myeloablative therapy and stem cell transplantation, as well as patients with a history of relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma, with or without residual disease
