High Risk Neuroblastoma in the new decade: Incorporating targeted therapies to maximize impact in current Children’s Oncology Group trials (C226)

coglogoWhile the overall cure rate for childhood cancer is approaching 80%, the prognosis for long-term survival for children with high risk neuroblastoma lags considerably behind, at 50%–60%. Upfront standard treatment for high-risk neuroblastoma protocols within the Children’s Oncology Group (COG) has historically utilized all available modalities of cancer treatment including chemotherapy, surgery, myeloablative chemotherapy with stem cell rescue, radiation therapy, differentiating agents, and most recently biologic therapy with anti-GD2 antibody (dinutuximab) used post consolidation in ANBL0032.

Paper Presentation: Outcomes of Serious Illness on Nurses, Patients, and Families—Inpatient Deaths of Children with Cancer: DNAR and CPR Events in Children Who Don’t Survive to Hospital Discharge (225-2)

Death in children with malignancy may result from refractory disease or acute complications during therapy. In this population, little is known about the medical interventions received in the last week of life from the overall cohort of children who die from cancer or related complications as inpatients. Perceptions of under- or over-treatment can cause distress among families and staff, yet the prevalence of do not attempt resuscitation (DNAR) orders, use of CPR, and other supportive therapies remains poorly described.

Paper Presentation: Outcomes of Serious Illness on Nurses, Patients, and Families—Keeping a Positive Outlook – Strategies, Threats, and Outcomes for Parents of Children with Cancer and Other Serious Illness (225-1)

Parents who make end-of-life decisions for their seriously ill children do so according to their individual definitions of ‘being a good parent’ to their seriously ill child.
