Who can enter
- Children with newly diagnosed high-risk neuroblastoma who are being treated according to the SIOPEN HR-NBL-2 protocol
- Age: 1-18 years
The goal of this study is to investigate the role of specific metabolites that are released in the blood in children with high-risk neuroblastoma.
Neuroblastoma cells can secrete specific metabolites that end up in the urine and blood of neuroblastoma patients. These distinct metabolites can be used to help diagnose neuroblastoma patients. Until now, we always measure the metabolites in urine. Now we want to investigate whether it is more accurate to measure these specific metabolites in blood.
International multicenter observational study to determine the diagnostic sensitivity of plasma metanephrines and urinary catecholamines and metabolites compared to standard evaluation procedures in children with high risk neuroblastoma
