Soft Tissue Sarcoma

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.

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. […]

2019 – ESTRO – Randomized NBTXR3 trial in STS

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. […]

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. […]

2017 – Abstract – CTOS – NBTXR3 induces antitumoral immune response in human STS

The enclosed abstract was presented at the “2017 Connective Tissue Oncology Society Annual Meeting (CTOS), Maui, Hawaii”. The abstract “NBTXR3 Treatment Induces Antitumoral Immune Response in Human Soft Tissue Sarcoma” describes how NBTXR3 activated by RT triggers an enhanced adaptive immune response and contributes to transform “cold” tumor into “hot” tumor.

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 […]

2017 – Abstract Conference Immunotherapy Radiotherapy Combinations NYC

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 […]
