In this exhibit, we will outline the revised International Neuroblastoma Response Criteria (INRC) used to assess treatment response in children with neuroblastoma, particularly high risk patients, in the context of clinical relevance to their treatment plan. Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid malignancy in children, accounting for approximately 12% of deaths in children younger than 15 years of age affected with cancer. Up to 50% of children with neuroblastoma are found to have a high-risk phenotype with poor long-term survival and risk of therapy-related toxicity. Due to a lack of consensus regarding the definition of disease response, the development of more effective therapy treatment of high-risk disease has been hindered. The revised INRC consensus integrates modern, functional imaging techniques and quantitative assessment of bone marrow disease. It is anticipated that the revised INRC will enable a more precise assessment of treatment response that can be used to inform treatment decisions. This exhibit will delve into these modalities which are more sensitive and specific for Neuroblastoma detection. This exhibit will also demonstrate how the revised response criteria are used in the clinical setting in the Children’s Oncology Group clinical trials. Read More
