About NBTXR3

NBTXR3 is a novel radioenhancer composed of functionalized hafnium oxide nanoparticles that is administered via one-time intra-tumoral injection and activated by radiation therapy. The physical and universal mode of action (MoA) of NBTXR3 is designed to trigger cellular destruction death and adaptive immune response.

NBTXR3 is being evaluated in locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) of the oral cavity or oropharynx in elderly patients unable to receive chemotherapy or cetuximab with limited therapeutic options. Promising results have been observed in the phase I trial regarding local control. In the United States, the Company has started the regulatory process to commence a phase III clinical trial in locally advanced head and neck cancers. In February 2020, the United States Food and Drug Administration granted the regulatory Fast Track designation for the investigation of NBTXR3 activated by radiation therapy, with or without cetuximab, for the treatment of patients with locally advanced head and neck squamous cell cancer who are not eligible for platinum-based chemotherapy.

Nanobiotix is also running an Immuno-Oncology development program. The Company has launched a Phase I clinical trial of NBTXR3 activated by radiotherapy in combination with anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitors in locoregional recurrent (LRR) or recurrent and metastatic (R/M) HNSCC amenable to re-irradiation of the HN and lung or liver metastases (mets) from any primary cancer eligible for anti-PD-1 therapy.

Other ongoing NBTXR3 trials are treating patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or liver metastases, locally advanced or unresectable rectal cancer in combination with chemotherapy, head and neck cancer in combination with concurrent chemotherapy, and pancreatic cancer. The Company is also engaged in a broad, comprehensive clinical research collaboration with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to further expand the NBTXR3 development program.

Advanced NanoTherapies Raises $5.3 Million in Seed-Round Financing – Business Wire

LOS GATOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Advanced NanoTherapies, Inc., a privately-held medical device company committed to exploring nanotechnology for enhanced drug uptake and sustained retention, today announced it has closed on the final tranche of its seed-round financing for a total of $5.3 million as a result of achieving a successful pre-clinical milestone. Funding came from a variety of angel investment sources in the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, including venture funding from Cleveland Clinic and ForMed Ventures of Taiwan.

Advanced NanoTherapies is led by CEO Marwan Berrada-Sounni, an entrepreneur with extensive experience in percutaneous therapies, including electrophysiology, structural heart, and cardiovascular and endovascular devices.

Our initial focus is on bringing a safer and more effective therapeutic option to patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) using Sirolimus-coated angioplasty balloons, said Berrada-Sounni. This funding will help us accelerate the development process, build our infrastructure, and move towards bringing this novel technology to patients with PAD.

Advanced NanoTherapies technology platform leverages patented biodegradable functionalized nanoparticles (f-NPs) and a proprietary coating process developed at Cleveland Clinic.

We know that f-NPs enable and improve drug uptake and retention into cells and tissue, said inventor Vinod Labhasetwar, PhD., Professor and Endowed Chair of Nanomedicine, Department of Biomedical Engineering at Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute. Due to technically challenging requirements involved in delivering Sirolimus efficiently to a stenosed artery, Advanced NanoTherapies use of f-NP is an innovative approach.

Advanced NanoTherapies licensed the technology from Cleveland Clinic Innovations.

While drug delivery using coated balloons is a well-established treatment strategy, our vision for using f-NP technology to address PAD represents a major advancement in drug-coated balloon (DCB) technology, said Dr. Mehdi Shishehbor, President, Harrington Heart and Vascular Institute University Hospitals, Cleveland and co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of Advanced NanoTherapies. This technology has implications for many other applications, such as coronary and peripheral in-stent restenosis, below-the-knee tibial disease in CLI, and dialysis AV graft treatment.

Berrada-Sounni added that the company will be working closely with the FDA to achieve an early feasibility study and introduce its technology to human populations.

About Advanced NanoTherapies

Co-founded by Marwan Berrada-Sounni, Advanced NanoTherapies, Inc. is a highly specialized medical device company that is developing a nanoparticle technology-based platform for drug delivery. The company is currently focused on cardiovascular and endovascular applications to bring a safer therapeutic option to patients with PAD using Sirolimus-coated angioplasty balloons.
