2017 – Abstract Conference Immunotherapy Radiotherapy Combinations NYC

Hafnium oxide, an electron-dense material, was designed at the nanoscale to increase the radiation dose deposited from within the cancer cells: “Hot spot” of energy deposit where the nanoparticles are when exposed to radiation therapy (RT). Preclinical studies have demonstrated increase of cancer cells killing in vitro and marked antitumor efficacy in vivo with presence of these nanoparticles […]

2015 – Clinical Sciences and Drug Discovery Abstract – Use of metals as nano-sized radiation enhancers – Pottier et al.

Since the discovery of cisplatin about 40 years ago, the design of innovative metal-based anticancer drugs is a growing area of research. Metal elements offer specific characteristics due to their intrinsic properties and could be used in relation to their final state: a metal complex, a radionuclide, a metal-based nanoparticle product. Transition metal coordination complexes interact with cell molecular targets, affecting biochemical functions resulting in cancer cell destruction. Radionuclides are another way to use metals as anticancer therapy. The metal nucleus of the unstable radionuclide becomes stable by emitting energy. The biological effect in different tissues is obtained by the absorption of this energy from the radiation emitted by the radionuclide, the principal target generally agreed for ionizing radiations being DNA. A new area of clinical research is now emerging using the same experimental metal elements, but in a radically different manner: metals and metal oxides used as crystalline nanosized radiation enhancers particles. The use of metals as a high electron density material tailored at the nanoscale when exposed to radiotherapy is a unique approach that can allow entry to the cell and make feasible the absorption/deposition of a high-energy dose within the tumor cell (on/off activity). Therefore, high electron density metal or metal oxide nanoparticles may bring well known physical mode of action, that of radiotherapy, within malignant cells and achieve the paradigm of local cancer treatment.

2011 – CLINAM Abstract – Thermosensitive Magnetoliposomes for MRI-Guided Drug Delivery – Meyr et al.

Congress: CLINAM, 23rd May 2011 – The development of new activatable drug nanocarriers, with multiple functionalities, presents a promising approach for cancer treatment. Improved drug delivery and controlled drug release at the tumor site may have considerable benefit by increasing treatment efficacy while reducing side effects and toxicity. Further, the possibility to monitor both nanocarrier accumulation and drug release via current clinical imaging techniques may be particularly relevant for an optimal treatment.

2010 – GDR Photomed Abstract – Silica Nanoparticles for Photodynamic Therapy – Thienot et al.

Photodynamic therapy in the elderly and heavily pretreated cancer patient populations may represent a promising therapeutical option in the management of malignant diseases provided that different approaches bring real improvement for its clinical application. Silica-based nanocarrier encapsulating photosensitizers, the protoporphyrin IX (Pp IX), have been designed to improve the tumor bioavailability, to reduce photosensitizer accumulation in the skin and to differentially deliver the nanocarriers to cell organelles.

2010 – CLINAM Abstract – Expected and Unexpected Side Effects of Nanodrugs – Levy et al.

Nanotechnology offers revolutionary strategies to improve healthcare. Adequate nanomaterial characterization constitutes the basis to establish relevant programs of nanoparticle/biological systems cross talk evaluation. Also, the surrounding conditions significantly impact on the state of the nanoparticles in terms of their collective behavior: dispersion, aggregation, and stability in gas or liquid.
