2018 – ASTRO – NBTXR3 Anti-Tumor Immune Response

Soft tissue sarcoma (STS) is a rare type of cancer, which occurs in tissues connecting, supporting and/or surrounding other structures of the body, like muscle, fat, etc. More than 50 subtypes of STS exist, characterized by a strong propensity to local recurrence and metastatic spreading. Consistently, the immune microenvironment in sarcomas is highly variable. A new class of high electron density material, hafnium oxide, was designed at the nanoscale to efficiently absorb ionizing radiation from within the tumor cells and increase the dose deposition into the tumor.

2018 – OncoRad – NBXTR3 in HNSCC and NSCLC with anti-PD1

Recent clinical studies have demonstrated the efficacy of anti-PD-1 in recurrent/metastatic HNSCC and upfront metastatic NSCLC patients. However, most patients with recurrent/metastatic HNSCC demon-strate innate (primary) resistance to checkpoint inhibition and do not respond to initial therapy and only a subset of metastatic HNSCC/NSCLC patients benefits from this treatment.

2018 – ASCO – NBTXR3 generates an anti-tumor immune response

The enclosed abstract was presented at the 13th Journées cancéropole Grand Sud-Ouest at Poitiers. The abstract Hafnium oxide nanoparticles as an emergent promising treatment for solid tumors describes how hafnium oxide nanoparticles were designed at the nanoscale in the form of crystalline 50nm-particles to efficiently absorb ionizing radiation and increase the radiation dose deposited – “hot spots” of energy deposit – from within the tumor cells for efficient cell killing.

2018 – ASTRO – NBTXR3 Exploratory Dosimetric Study

NBTXR3, injectable hafnium oxide nanoparticles, was designed to increase the energy deposit of the irradiation when activated by radiotherapy for the treatment of solid tumors. It is currently evaluated in a phase II/III clinical trial in soft tissue sarcoma (STS) [NCT02379845] of the extremity and trunk wall, to compare its efficacy when intratumorally injected and activated by radiotherapy versus radiotherapy alone.

2018 – ASTRO – NBTXR3 in solid tumors

To improve radiotherapy (RT) in terms of tumor response and to reduce irradiation of healthy tissues, innovative therapeutic approaches are needed. In response, NBTXR3, injectable hafnium oxide nanoparticles, was developed for the treatment of solid tumors. Once injected intratumorally, NBTXR3 can deposit high energy within tumors only when activated by an ionizing radiation source, like current standard RTs. […]

2018 – ESMO – Phase II/III NBTXR3 in STS

NBTXR3 is a first-in-class Hafnium-Oxide nanoparticle intratumorally (IT) injected. When activated by radiotherapy (RT), it allows for a higher energy deposit than RT alone, yielding an increased tumoral cell death. A phase I study in soft tissue sarcoma (STS) showed that a single NBTXR3 IT injection at 10% of the baseline tumor volume with preoperative RT was technically feasible with manageable toxicity and clinical activity was observed.

2018 – ASTRO 2018 – Phase III NBTXR3 in Soft Tissue Sarcoma

A subset of soft tissue sarcoma (STS) patients achieve significant therapeutic benefit from preoperative radiotherapy (RT). Yet, this treatment paradigm may be associated with limited efficacy and increased toxicity, highlighting the necessity of novel multimodal therapies aimed at local control with few adverse events (AEs). NBTXR3 is a first-in-class Hafnium-Oxide nanoparticle. […]
