2019 – AHNS – Phase I/II NBTXR3 in combination with anti-PD-1

Preoperative radiotherapy (RT) is an option for a subset of patients with locally advanced primary or relapsed tumors. Yet, its impact on efficacy in terms of pathological response is limited, highlighting the need for novel multimodal therapies aimed at local control with low toxicity. NBTXR3 is made of hafnium oxide nanoparticles which, injected intratumorally (IT) and activated by ionizing radiation, yield a tumor-localized high energy deposit and increase cell death compared to the same dose of RT alone.

2019 – ESTRO – NBTXR3 activated by SBRT in liver cancers

Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and liver metastasis (mets) present with a wide range of underlying liver dysfunctions and concomitant malignancies. Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is well-tolerated and a valuable alternative for patients who are not eligible for invasive procedures. Yet, like all radiation therapy (RT) techniques, the energy dose deposit to tumor cells is limited by the surrounding healthy tissues. […]

2019 – ICHNO – Phase I/II NBTXR3 in HNSCC

Hafnium oxide nanoparticles, NBTXR3, were developed to augment tumor-localized high energy deposit once activated by ionizing radiation such as Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and thus to increase tumor cell death compared to the same dose of radiation. NBTXR3 is characterized by a single intratumoral (IT) administration and fits into standard radiotherapy schedule with no change in patient’s care pathway, treatment protocol or equipment. […]

2019 – ASCO-SITC – NBTXR3 with anti-PD-1 in advanced HNSCC or NSCLC

Despite proven efficacy, a limited number of patients (pts) with recurrent/metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) benefit from anti-PD-1 treatment. Indeed, most pts do not respond to initial therapy due to intrinsic re-sistance to checkpoint inhibition. There is thus an important unmet medical need for a curative treatment in these pts and converting the local immune microenvironment to a “hot” phenotype may help to overcome therapeutic resistance.

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.
