Nanobiotix provides update on the global development of its lead product NBTXR3

  • Nanobiotix will give two immuno-oncology presentations at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) conference this month
  • Tolerability, safety and first tumor response data in liver cancer will be presented at the ASCO GI conference in January 2018
  • IND application in process of being filed in the U.S. for a combination trial with checkpoint inhibitors

Paris, France and Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, November 9, 2017 - NANOBIOTIX   (Euronext: NANO - ISIN: FR0011341205), a late clinical-stage nanomedicine company pioneering new approaches to the treatment of cancer, today provides an update on the global development of its lead product, NBTXR3.

Nanobiotix's lead product, NBTXR3, has a universal physical mode of action which is designed for the local destruction of tumors. In addition to the physical destruction of cancer cells, recently published data suggests that NBTXR3 generates immunogenic cell death that could trigger a specific immune response to attack tumors. In this regard, Nanobiotix is developing several programs in Immuno-Oncology on top of its core developments.

The global development of NBTXR3 is progressing well, following the Company's expectations.

NBTXR3 in Head and Neck Cancer, Phase I/II trial, in elderly patients (Europe)

Prof. Christophe Le Tourneau, the trial's Principal Investigator, presented an update during the Trends in Head and Neck Oncology conference (THNO) earlier this month. This update included a median follow up of 14.2 months, confirming the potential impact of NBTXR3 on the long-term response of the treatment.

Following the very positive results obtained, Nanobiotix filed a protocol amendment of this study to include 44 additional patients - an expansion which aims to demonstrate the efficacy of NBTXR3. Nanobiotix is also opening 12-15 additional sites in Europe to expand the development of this indication.

NBTXR3 Immuno-Oncology clinical and preclinical programs

The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) conference has invited Nanobiotix to present an update of its Immuno-Oncology program on Soft Tissue Sarcoma (STS) patient data on November 11, 2017. During this conference, the Company will also provide preclinical Immuno-Oncological data on November 12, 2017.

NBTXR3 in Liver Cancers, Phase I/II trial (France)

Nanobiotix has been selected to present at the ASCO GI conference, the world's leading gastrointestinal oncology symposium, on January 18-20, 2018. The Company plans to present the safety and tolerability results and the first tumor response of patients treated at the first dose levels, and detail the next steps of the trial.

NBTXR3 in Combination with Checkpoint Inhibitors in Lung and Head and Neck Cancer patients (U.S.) - Immuno-Oncology program

Nanobiotix plans to conduct its first clinical trial with NBTXR3 in combination with immune checkpoint inhibitors in the U.S., with a multi-arm trial targeting a sub-population of advanced lung, and head and neck cancer patients.  The medium-term objective is to transform non-responders into checkpoint inhibitor responders while improving patient benefits. The trial aims to evaluate the ability of NBTXR3 to generate an abscopal effect.

This trial also aims to expand the potential of NBTXR3, including using it to treat recurrent or metastatic disease.

The trial would begin by combining NBTXR3 with any approved checkpoint inhibitors in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma or non-small cell lung cancer.

The IND application for this trial is ongoing.

NBTXR3 - CE Marking

Nanobiotix is working closely with the notified body in order to prepare for the CE Marking. The process is progressing according to plan and the Company's original time horizon remains unchanged.
