Dinutuximab beta is indicated for the treatment of high-risk neuroblastoma in patients who have previously received induction chemotherapy and achieved at least a partial response. Dinutuximab beta is an antibody directed against the carbohydrate moiety of disialoganglioside 2 (GD2), which is overexpressed on neuroblastoma cells. After binding, dinutuximab beta induces cell death through complement-dependent cytotoxicity and antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity.
