(yoo-nih-TUK-sin)
A drug used with granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), aldesleukin (IL-2), and 13-cis-retinoic acid to treat high-risk neuroblastoma. It is used in children whose disease has improved with other anticancer treatment. Unituxin binds to a substance called GD2, which is found on some types of cancer cells.
