2020 – ASCO – NBTXR3 Dose Expansion for Locally Advanced HNSCC

The standard of care non-surgical approach for locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (LA HNSCC) patients (pts) is concurrent chemoradiation with high dose cisplatin or cetuximab in case of contra-indication. Older age is a contra-indication to cisplatin, and cetuximab might not improve survival in older pts. It is therefore urgently needed to develop new treatment options for elderly pts with LA HNSCC. NBTXR3 are hafnium oxide nanoparticles that can enhance the efficacy of radiotherapy (RT) by increasing locally the deposited dose. […]

2020 – MHNCS – NBTXR3 for locally advanced HNSCC

Elderly and/or frail patients (pts) with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HSNCC) remain a challenging to manage and neglected population regarding clinical trials and data generation to support treatment choices. Despite representing 20% of the HNSCC population no consensus exists on what is the optimal treatment for these pts with locally advanced (LA) disease, vulnerable to treatment-induced toxicities with the current standard of care. […]

2019 – ESMO IO – NBTXR3 with anti-PD-1

The majority of cancer patients are resistant to immune therapy; only around 15% respond to immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI). Thus, strategies able to increase ICI response are of great interest. Recent work suggests radiotherapy (RT) can act as an immunomodulator to increase the proportion of ICI responders and improve clinical outcomes. However, RT dose and ultimate efficacy are limited by toxicity related to exposure of healthy tissues. […]

2019 – RSNA – Treatment of locally advanced HNSCC by NBTXR3

Elderly head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HSNCC) patients (pts) ineligible for standard of care treatment require new therapeutic approaches. NBTXR3, hafnium oxide nanoparticles, may represent such an option. NBTXR3 is activated by radiotherapy, enhancing its effects, leading to physical destruction of cancer cells. A Phase I/II trial [NCT01946867] is underway to evaluate NBTXR3 in elderly (≥70 years) or frail pts with HNSCC of the oral cavity and oropharynx ineligible for cisplatin or intolerant to cetuximab. […]

2019 – SIOG – NBTXR3 for the treatment of elderly/frail HNSCC patients

New therapeutic approaches are needed for elderly or frail head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients (pts) ineligible for standard of care. NBTXR3, hafnium oxide nanoparticles injected intratumorally, may represent an option. Otherwise inert, NBTXR3 augments the radiation therapy (RT) dose within tumor cells when activated by RT, increasing tumor cell death compared to RT alone. […]

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 – ASCO – Phase I NBTXR3 in elderly/frail HNSCC patients

New therapeutic approaches are needed for elderly or frail head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients (pts) ineligible for standard of care treatment. NBTXR3, a crystalline solution of hafnium oxide nanoparticles may represent such an option. Injected intratumorally, NBTXR3 enters tumor cells and yields an increased cell-localized energy deposit upon exposure to radiotherapy (RT), leading to increased tumor cell death compared to the same dose of RT alone. […]

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. […]
