2019 – ASTRO – NBTXR3 for the treatment of solid tumors

Local interventional treatments of cancers include interventional radiology and radiotherapy (RT). NBTXR3, hafnium oxide nanoparticles, is deeply associated to both. Given as a single local administration it increases energy dose deposit inside tumor cells only when activated by ionizing radiation. Various interventional treatments have been used to treat cancers such as liver, lung, bone. Because entirely new therapies such as NBTXR3 are being introduced, implementation of interventional approaches is continuously growing. […]

2019 – ASTRO – NBTXR3 for the treatment liver cancers

The medical community faces important challenges to treat liver cancer because of underlying disease. Reduction of healthy tissue irradiation while at the same time increasing energy dose deposit within tumor cells still constitutes a challenge in radiation oncology. NBTXR3, hafnium oxide nanoparticles, increase energy deposit inside tumor cells only when activated by ionizing radiation such as stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and thus increase tumor cell death compared to radiation alone.

2019 – ESMO WGI – NBTXR3 in unresectable liver cancers

The treatment of liver cancers is challenging in part due to the presence of underlying liver diseases. In patients unsuitable for surgery, interventional radiation oncology approaches, i.e. minimally invasive image guided therapeutic procedures, offer new treatment opportunities and can achieve good local control. NBTXR3, hafnium oxide nanoparticles, administered via intratumoral injection, increases energy deposit inside tumor cells only when activated by ionizing radiation such as stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and thus increase tumor cell death compared to radiation alone.

2018 – ASCO – NBTXR3 in the treatment of liver cancer: a phase I/II trial

With recent advances in radiation delivery techniques, an increasing number of cancer patients undergo radiotherapy. However, due to the non-targeted nature of radiotherapy, doses are limited by potential toxicity to surrounding normal tissue. Thus, a major challenge remains to develop new strategies to improve the tumor selectivity of radiation therapy. […]

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.

2018 – ASCO GI – A phase I/II trial of NBTXR3 nanoparticles activated by SBRT in the treatment of liver cancers

The physical mode of action of NBTXR3 may represent a breakthrough approach for the local treatment of liver cancers, as it does not engage liver and renal functions, i.e. nanoparticles are not metabolized and not excreted by kidney. A phase I/II trial has been implemented for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma and liver metastasis. […]

2017 – Abstract – 35th CFS – Hafnium Oxide Nanoparticles: An Emergent Promising Treatment for Solid Tumors

Hafnium oxide nanoparticles: an emergent promising treatment for solid tumors To improve tumor response, radiotherapy (RT) has been combined with chemical agents, radiosensitizers and monoclonal antibodies. However, the complexity of these associations in terms of pharmacology, local control, clinical outcome benefits or patient quality of life underlines the need for the development of new therapeutic approaches. […]
