ANBL1821: A Phase 2 Randomized Study of Irinotecan/Temozolomide/Dinutuximab with or without Eflornithine (DFMO) (IND# 141913) in Children with Relapsed, Refractory or Progressive Neuroblastoma


NCT Number:



Study Status:






The goal of this study is to utilize eflornithine (DFMO) to improve response rates in patients with relapsed neuroblastoma in combination with dinutuximab/irinotecan/temozolomide compared to patients assigned to receive dinutuximab/irinotecan/temozolomide alone. DFMO works to inhibit ODC1, an enzyme in the tumor growth pathway.
