    5. Results Indicate That Larotrectinib Is Effective as the First Novel Targeted Therapy to Show a Consistent Response across Multiple Tumor Types in Adult and Pediatric Patients

      Results Indicate That Larotrectinib Is Effective as the First Novel Targeted Therapy to Show a Consistent Response across Multiple Tumor Types in Adult and Pediatric Patients

      Larotrectinib (LOXO-101) has demonstrated consistent and durable antitumor activity in tropomyosin receptor kinase (TRK) fusion cancers across a wide range of patient ages and tumor types and was well tolerated by patients, according to results from three clinical trials presented today at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology in Chicago.

    7. Phase I study of perifosine monotherapy in patients with recurrent or refractory neuroblastoma

      Perifosine is an alkylphospholipid analog that inhibits or modulates signaling through signal transduction pathways such as Akt, which is enhanced in neuroblastoma (NB) by activation of tyrosine kinase receptors. We conducted a phase I study of perifosine in Japanese patients with recurrent or refractory NB.

      NCI-2016-01734, NCT03126916

      This partially randomized phase III trial studies iobenguane I-131 or crizotinib and standard therapy in treating younger patients with newly-diagnosed high-risk neuroblastoma or ganglioneuroblastoma. Radioactive drugs, such as iobenguane I-131, may carry radiation directly to tumor cells and not harm normal cells.

    9. Testing a new immunotherapy treatment for neuroblastoma

      Testing a new immunotherapy treatment for neuroblastoma

      Immunotherapies are changing the outlook for many cancer patients.

      Drugs that block cancer cells from deflecting an immune attack are now routinely used to treat advanced skin and kidney cancers, and are showing promise in other types of cancer too.

      But cancers are complex and diverse – what works well against one type of cancer might have little effect against another. The immunotherapies available for some patients aren’t a magic bullet that will work for everyone.

      Biomarker May Identify Neuroblastoma Patients Most Likely to Benefit from Immunotherapy

      ​WASHINGTON — Among patients with high-risk neuroblastoma, those who had a certain combination of genotypes gained substantial benefit from adding immunotherapy to isotretinoin treatment, while it is uncertain whether those who lacked the combination gained benefit from immunotherapy, according to results from a randomized phase III clinical trial presented here at the AACR Annual Meeting 2017, April 1-5.

    18. Combination of bevacizumab, irinotecan, and temozolomide for refractory or relapsed neuroblastoma: Results of a phase II study

      The rationale for studying the combination of bevacizumab, irinotecan, and temozolomide (BIT) in neuroblastoma (NB) is based on the following: (i) vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression is associated with an aggressive phenotype, (ii) anti-VEGF antibody bevacizumab enhances irinotecan-mediated suppression of NB xenografts, (iii) bevacizumab safety has been established in pediatric phase I studies, and (iv) irinotecan + temozolomide (IT) is a standard salvage chemotherapy.
