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 – Immunotherapy Workshop

Radiotherapy (RT) has proven its ability to function like an in-situ vaccine, showing potential for successful combination with immunotherapeutic agents. Hafnium oxide nanoparticle (HfO2-NP), undergoing clinical trials for enhancing RT, was designed as high electron density material at the nanoscale. HfO2-NPs are taken up by cancer cells and, when exposed to RT, locally increase the radiation dose deposit, triggering more cancer cells death when compared to RT. We hypothesized that HfO2-NP+RT could trigger an enhanced immune response when compared to RT, both in preclinical and clinical settings.

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 […]
