2018 – ASCO – NBTXR3 generates an anti-tumor immune response

The enclosed abstract was presented at the 13th Journées cancéropole Grand Sud-Ouest at Poitiers. The abstract Hafnium oxide nanoparticles as an emergent promising treatment for solid tumors describes how hafnium oxide nanoparticles were designed at the nanoscale in the form of crystalline 50nm-particles to efficiently absorb ionizing radiation and increase the radiation dose deposited – “hot spots” of energy deposit – from within the tumor cells for efficient cell killing.

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 – 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 – 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 – 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. […]

Preoperative radiotherapy (RT) is an option for a subset of patients with locally advanced primary or relapsed tumors.
