NANOBIOTIX to Present First Survival Data from Priority Head and Neck Cancer Program Among Five Presentations at 2021 American Society for Radiation Oncology Annual Meeting
PARIS & CAMBRIDGE, Mass .– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Regulatory news:
NANOBIOTIX (Euronext: NANO – NASDAQ: NBTX – the ”Society”), an advanced clinical biotechnology company pioneering physics-based approaches to expand treatment options for cancer patients, today announced two oral presentations and three poster presentations at the 2021 annual meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO). The meeting will be held from October 24-27, 2021.
“Providing disruptive therapeutic solutions that expand treatment options for cancer patients begins with having a significant impact on survival,” said Laurent Levy, co-founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Nanobiotix. “Delivering the first insight into these exploratory endpoints in our Phase I head and neck cancer study will provide useful insight into the potential of our innovation in our priority indication as we prepare to launch our phase World III. As we continue to develop NBTXR3 as a potential therapy widely applicable to solid tumor types and combination therapy in parallel, we also look forward to providing updates in immunotherapy and soft tissue sarcoma. ”

NBTXR3 is a potentially first-in-class new oncology product comprised of functionalized hafnium oxide nanoparticles that are delivered by single intratumoral injection and activated by radiation therapy. The physical mechanism of action (MoA) of the candidate product is designed to induce significant tumor cell death in the injected tumor when activated by radiotherapy, subsequently triggering an adaptive immune response and long-term anti-cancer memory. Given the physical MoA, Nanobiotix believes that NBTXR3 could be scalable in any solid tumor that can be treated with radiation therapy and in any combination therapy, especially immune checkpoint inhibitors.
NBTXR3 is being evaluated in locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (HNSCC) as a major development pathway. The company sponsored Phase I dose escalation and extension study produced favorable safety data and early signs of efficacy; and a phase III global registration study is expected to be launched in 2021. In February 2020, the United States Food and Drug Administration granted Fast Track regulatory designation for the study of radiotherapy-activated NBTXR3, with or without cetuximab , for the treatment of patients with locally advanced HNSCC who are not eligible for platinum-based chemotherapy – the same population being assessed in the planned phase III study.
Nanobiotix has also prioritized a development program in immuno-oncology, starting with a Company-sponsored Phase I clinical study evaluating radiotherapy-activated NBTXR3 in combination with anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitors for patients with recurrent or recurrent / metastatic locoregional HNSCC and pulmonary or hepatic metastases. any primary cancer eligible for anti-PD-1 treatment.
Given the areas of focus of the Company and the scalable potential of NBTXR3, Nanobiotix has embarked on a strategy of strategic collaboration with world-class partners to expand the development of the product candidate alongside its priority development paths. As part of this strategy, Nanobiotix entered into a large and comprehensive clinical research collaboration in 2019 with the MD Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas to sponsor several phase I and phase II studies to evaluate NBTXR3 through types of tumors and therapeutic combinations.
