Neuroblastoma Drugs Market Overview

The Global Neuroblastoma Drugs Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecasting period (2023-2030). Neuroblastoma is a type of tumour that begins in certain very early forms of nerve cells, most often found in an embryo or foetus. The term neuro refers to nerves, while blastoma refers to cancer that primarily affects immature or developing cells. It occurs most often in infants and young children, and it is rare in children older than ten years. Most neuroblastomas begin in sympathetic nerve ganglia in the abdomen; about half of these start in the adrenal gland and most of the rest start in sympathetic ganglia near the spine, chest or neck, or pelvis.

It accounts for about 6% of all cancers in children. According to the American cancer society, there are about 800 new cases of neuroblastoma each year in the United States. The average age of children when they are diagnosed is about 1 to 2 years. In rare cases, neuroblastoma is detected by ultrasound even before birth. Nearly 90% of cases are diagnosed by age 5. Signs and symptoms of neuroblastoma vary depending on what part of the body is affected. In the abdomen, it causes abdominal pain, a mass under the tender skin when touched, Changes in bowel habits, such as diarrhoea or constipation. In chest may cause signs and symptoms such as Wheezing, Chest pain, Changes to the eyes, including drooping eyelids and unequal pupil size. The treatment for neuroblastoma depends on the child's age and the stage of their cancer. It may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, a stem cell transplant.

Neuroblastoma Drugs Market Dynamics and Trends

The global Neuroblastoma Drugs market growth is driven by the growing incidence of neuroblastoma, Rising demand for anti-GD2 antibodies. Also, increasing R&D activities for relapsed refractory neuroblastoma is anticipated the major factor to drive the neuroblastoma drugs market.

Rising demand for anti-GD2 antibodies is expected to drive the global Neuroblastoma Drugs market during the forecast period.

Identifying the therapeutic targets on cancer cells or within the signalling cascade that leads to tumor growth is a promising field in cancer research. GD2 (0-acetyl-GD2 ganglioside) is a cell surface antigen that is overexpressing GD2 receptors can be eliminated by using specific monoclonal antibodies against GD2. For instance, Dinutuximab was the first identified drug acting as an anti-GD2-specific monoclonal antibody, which was approved for the treatment of neuroblastoma. The main reason for the boost of neuroblastoma drug sales such as anti-GD2 is their ability to provide site-specific action. As a result, these drugs do not pose any cytotoxic effects in the body that tend to impact the quality of life of neuroblastoma patients. Therefore, physicians are prescribing anti-GD2 monoclonal antibodies as neuroblastoma drugs for the treatment of neuroblastoma. These factors will increase the global market growth during the forecast period.

The high cost of treatment is expected to hinder the global Neuroblastoma Drugs market during the forecast period.

In low and medium-income countries where the government's health insurance is only 40%, the cost of treatment can be a fortune for patients. As per the data published in the National Library of Medicine NIH, the medical cost of neuroblastoma treatment depends upon the risk level. For low risk 27,748.62 USD, middle risk 30,831.80 USD and high risk 100,203.35 USD respectively. This factor is restricting market growth.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis on Neuroblastoma Drugs Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted healthcare systems globally and majorly on the neuroblastoma drugs market. As per the article published in Cancer Connect 2020, doctors from Dana Farber Cancer Institute determined that during the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a 46% decrease in the diagnoses of the cancers. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and many medical professional organizations recommended that cancer screening and other health prevention services, along with elective surgeries, be postponed unless the risks outweighed the benefits and secure the hospital infrastructure for the treatment of COVID-19 patients. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the Ongoing clinical trials too. However, the situation is expected to improve gradually.

Neuroblastoma Drugs Market Segmentation Analysis

Based on the Drug Type, the global Neuroblastoma drugs market is segmented into Dinutuximab, Cisplatin, Doxorubicin, Vincristine, Etoposide, Others

Dinutuximab accounts for the largest market share in drug type.

Dinutuximab is the first identified drug acting as an anti-GD2-specific monoclonal antibody approved by the FDA to treat neuroblastoma. It is approved to be used with granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), aldesleukin (IL-2), and 13-cis retinoic acid to treat by providing site-specific action. Besides, these drugs do not pose any cytotoxic effects in the body that tend to impact the quality of life of neuroblastoma patients.


Doxorubicin under the tradename Adriamycin is the most powerful chemotherapy drug approved by FDA to treat neuroblastoma. For instance, Johnson & Johnson operates its business under three segments, which include pharmaceutical, medical devices, and consumers. The company’s key offering includes DOXIL which is a chemotherapy drug indicated for the treatment of neuroblastoma. Doxil is an anthracycline topoisomerase II inhibitor that inhibits nucleic acid synthesis by binding to DNA. It has side effects like hair loss, heart damage, bone marrow suppression. 


Cisplatin is one of the chemotherapy drugs used to treat neuroblastoma. Cisplatin is a platinum-based antineoplastic medication. It works by binding to DNA and inhibiting its replication. Common side effects include bone marrow suppression, hearing problems, kidney damage. For instance, ETOPOPHOS by Bristol-Myers Squibb is indicated for the treatment of localized and unresectable neuroblastoma in combination with cisplatin.


Vincristine is also called leurocristine and marketed under the brand names Oncovin, Vincrex, Vincasar PFS is a chemotherapy medication used to treat neuroblastoma. It works partly by binding to the tubulin protein, stopping the tubulin dimers from polymerizing to form microtubules, causing the cell to be unable to separate its chromosomes during the metaphase. The cell then undergoes apoptosis. Some side effects may include neuropathic pain, lung damage, or low white blood cells, which increases the risk of infection. For instance, Vincrex is a Bristol-Myers Squibb chemotherapy drug indicated alone or in combination with other chemotherapy drugs to treat neuroblastoma.


Etoposide, sold under the brand name ETOPOPHOS, Vepesid is a chemotherapy medication used to treat neuroblastoma. Etoposide is in the topoisomerase II inhibitor drug. It is used orally or in injection into a vein. Side effects are very common: low blood cell counts, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, hair loss, and fever. Other dangerous side effects include allergic reactions and low blood pressure. For instance, Etopophos is a key product offered by Bristol-Myers Squibb.
