2018 – OncoRad – NBXTR3 in HNSCC and NSCLC with anti-PD1

Recent clinical studies have demonstrated the efficacy of anti-PD-1 in recurrent/metastatic HNSCC and upfront metastatic NSCLC patients. However, most patients with recurrent/metastatic HNSCC demon-strate innate (primary) resistance to checkpoint inhibition and do not respond to initial therapy and only a subset of metastatic HNSCC/NSCLC patients benefits from this treatment. […]

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 – 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.

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. […]

2018 – ESTRO – Hafnium Oxide Nanoparticles and Radiotherapy: A Promising New Treatment Strategy

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. […]
