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.

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. […]

2018 – ESMO – NBTXR3 in HCC and Liver Metastasis

For patients (pts) with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or liver metastasis (liver mets), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is a well-tolerated option. Yet, the risk of injury to normal tissues limits the ability to efficiently sterilize tumor cells. Thus, hafnium oxide nanoparticles, NBXTR3, were developed, which increase the interaction of radiotherapy energy dose deposition within tumor cells when activated by an ionizing energy source like SBRT.

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. […]
