Dr Normando Iznaga-Escobar, the Scientific Officer of Innokeys Pte Ltd, attended ANZCHOG 2017 to present a poster summarizing 10 years of experience with the use of nimotuzumab, an anti-EGFR humanized monoclonal antibody, for the treatment of newly diagnosed children with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) and in recurrent or refractory children with high grade glioma.

The poster summarised the results of 112 newly diagnosed children with DIPG recruited into 2 clinical studies and 1 physician led study as well as 128 children with recurrent or refractory high-grade glioma recruited into 2 clinical studies and 2 physician lead studies. In conclusion, the 10-year use of nimotuzumab used in combination with radiotherapy and radio chemotherapy was seen to be efficacious in children newly diagnosed with DIPG and recurrent or refractory high-grade glioma.
