2020 – ESTRO – NBTXR3 for the Treatment of Advanced Liver Cancers

The use of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for the local control of unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or liver metastases (mets) is well tolerated but limited by the need to preserve liver function. Increasing energy deposit within the tumor without increasing toxicity in healthy tissues remains a major challenge in radiation oncology. NBTXR3 (hafnium oxide nanoparticles), a first-in-class radioenhancer when activated by RT augments energy dose deposit within tumor cells, increasing tumor cell death compared to RT alone, while sparing healthy tissues.

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 – 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 – 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.

2019 – ASCO – NBTXR3 in Liver Cancers

Hafnium oxide nanoparticles, NBTXR3, increase the effect of radiotherapy (RT) by enhancing local energy dose deposit within tumor cells, resulting in increased cell death compared to the same dose of RT alone. NBTXR3 efficacy was demonstrated in a phase II/III study in soft tissue sarcoma (NCT02379845) and is currently evaluated in other solid tumors including liver cancers. The use of this radio enhancer is particularly relevant in liver cancer management, a difficult to treat heterogenous population, due to the presence of underlying liver dysfunction. […]

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. […]

2017 – A phase 1 trial of NBTXR3 nanoparticles activated by IMRT in the treatment of advanced-stage head and neck carcinoma

Functionalized hafnium oxide nanoparticles (NBTXR3) have been developed as selective radioenhancers, which may represent a breakthrough approach for the local treatment of solid tumors. The high electron density of the nanoparticles, when exposed to radiotherapy (RT), allow the absorption/deposition of a high radiation dose within the tumor cells, to physically kill the cells and possibly improve outcome.
