WEP Clinical (WEP) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Y-mAbs Therapeutics, Inc. (Y-mAbs), a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel, antibody-based therapeutic products for the treatment of cancer. Together, WEP and Y-mAbs, will make DANYELZA® (naxitamab-gqgk) 40mg/10mL Injection available to patients contingent on meeting the eligibility criteria in Europe through a Named Patient Program (NPP) subject to receiving local approval.
DANYELZA® is a humanized, monoclonal antibody that binds to the glycolipid GD2. GD2 is a disialoganglioside that is overexpressed on neuroblastoma cells and other cells of neuroectodermal origin, including the central nervous system and peripheral nerves. DANYELZA® is administrated on days 1, 3, and 5, of each treatment cycle as an intravenous infusion after dilution. Treatment cycles are repeated every 4 weeks until complete response or partial response, following by 5 additional cycles every 4 weeks. It was developed by researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) and is exclusively licensed by MSK to Y-mAbs.
In the US, DANYELZA® is approved by the FDA and indicated, in combination with granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (“GM-CSF”), for the treatment of pediatric patients 1 year of age and older and adult patients with relapsed or refractory high-risk neuroblastoma in the bone or bone marrow who have demonstrated a partial response, minor response, or stable disease to prior therapy.
