This past week, Nanobiotix, a fledgling nanomedicine company, released findings in regards to results obtained during pre-clinical trials that tested the company's patented nanoXray™ therapeutics platform to fight cancerous tumors.
The pre-clinical investigation, which was performed at Institute Gustav Roussy in Villejuif, France, showed that an intratumoral injection of NBTXR3 nanoparticles and activated via standard radiation therapy led to complete tumor regression in mice at 60 days, compared to zero tumor regression in mice treated with x-ray only or NBTXR3 only.
Researchers at Nanobiotix tout the usefulness of nano-rays as part of a new innovation in cancer therapy, namely a technology that kills cancer cells only and not the healthy tissue that surrounds them. "We are extremely excited by these preclinical results, which demonstrate the novel therapeutic effect of nanoparticles on human tumor models," said Laurent Lévy, Ph.D., President and CEO of Nanobiotix and Co-President of the French Technology Platform on Nanotechnology (FTPN).
