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 […]

2017 – Abstract SITC Conference Maryland – Clinical

Soft tissue sarcoma (STS) is a large and heterogeneous group of malignant mesenchymal neoplasms characterized by a strong tendency toward local recurrence and metastatic spreading. Consistently, the immune microenvironment in sarcomas is highly variable. A new class of material with high electron density, hafnium oxide, was designed at the nanoscale to efficiently absorb ionizing radiation […]

2017 – A phase 1 trial of NBTXR3 nanoparticles activated by IMRT in the treatment of advanced-stage head and neck carcinoma

Functionalized hafnium oxide nanoparticles (NBTXR3) have been developed as selective radioenhancers, which may represent a breakthrough approach for the local treatment of solid tumors. The high electron density of the nanoparticles, when exposed to radiotherapy (RT), allow the absorption/deposition of a high radiation dose within the tumor cells, to physically kill the cells and possibly improve outcome.

2017 – A new opportunity for nanomedicines – Paolini et al.

Nanomedicines are mainly used as drug delivery systems; here we evaluate a new application - to inhibit a drug's metabolism thereby enhancing its effective dose. Micelles containing the natural furanocoumarin 6′,7′ dihydroxybergamottin (DHB), a known CYP450 inhibitor, were developed to transiently block hepatic CYP450-mediated drug metabolism and increase the bioavailability of the oncology drug docetaxel.
