2019 – ASTRO – NBTXR3 generates an anti tumor immune response

Hafnium oxide nanoparticles (NBTXR3) activated by radiotherapy (RT) increase radiation dose deposit within cancer cells compared to RT alone. Currently 7 clinical trials are underway to evaluate NBTXR3+RT. To date, no dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) have been observed. Given that RT can prime an anti-tumor immune response we hypothesized that this response could be enhanced by NBTXR3+RT in both animals and humans. […]

2019 – ASCO – NBTXR3 induces antitumor immune response

Radiotherapy (RT) can prime an anti-tumor immune response. Unfortunately, this response rarely generates total tumor destruction and abscopal effect. When activated by RT, intratumorally (IT) administered hafnium oxide nanoparticles (NBTXR3) locally increase radiation dose deposit and tumor cell death compared to RT alone. We hypothesized that NBTXR3 + RT could enhance the anti-tumor immune response, both in mice and humans. […]

2017 – Abstract – 13th Journées cancéropole GSO – HfO2 nanoparticles in solid tumors

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.

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 – Specific adaptive immune pattern induced by NBTXR3 exposed to radiation therapy in soft tissue sarcoma (STS) patients

NBTXR3 are functionalized hafnium oxide nanoparticles, undergoing seven clinical trials for enhancing radiation therapy (RT). The high electron density of the nanoparticles, when exposed to radiotherapy (NBTXR3 + RT), allow absorption/deposition of a high radiation dose within the cancer cells to physically kill the cells, and possibly improve outcome. Besides, NBTXR3 + RT has shown subsequent ability to enhance immunogenic cell death and immune response in preclinics. We hypothesized that NBTXR3 + RT could trigger an enhanced immune response when compared to RT in patients with STS.
