CEA-Leti Announces €1 Million from bpifrance (ex OSEO) to Speed Preclinical Development of Cancer-Detecting Nanoparticles: Grant Helps Launch NICE: France’s First Nanomedicine Consortium

Grenoble, France | Posted on July 3rd, 2013

The grant, awarded through bpifrance 's Strategic Industrial Innovation (ISI) program, will accelerate the development of LipImage 815™, including production and regulatory toxicity evaluation. It also supports the launch of NICE (Nano Innovation for Cancer), the first consortium of nanomedicine stakeholders in France focused on aspects of characterization and industrialization. The consortium has been accredited by the Medicen Paris Region, a competitive cluster for innovative therapies in Ile-de-France (www.medicen.org).

Developed by Leti, LipImage 815™ is a fluorescent imaging agent based on Leti's Lipidots® platform that uses lipid nanoparticles to carry a fluorescent substance to targeted cells and improve the effectiveness of diagnosis. It will be used to test for early stages of liver cancer.

Consisting of five public and private partners and led by BioAlliance Pharma, the NICE consortium includes partners with deep expertise in the field of nanomedicine. Its mission is to build a platform to accelerate the development and industrialization of nanomedicine in France by capitalizing on the strong and complementary expertise of each partner.

In addition to Leti, the consortium includes:

- BioAlliance Pharma, developer of Livatag®, a doxorubicin nanoparticle currently in phase III clinical trial for treatment of primary liver cancer
- Nanobiotix, developer of NBTXR3, a potentiator of radiation therapy in the local treatment of cancer
- DBI, a company specialized in the production of nanomedicine pharmaceutical products
- Institut Galien Paris Sud (University Paris Sud/CNRS), which has an academic-excellence team specialized in nanoparticles research

"By bringing together a highly experienced team of specialists in various fields of nanomedicine, this program can significantly accelerate the development of an effective new tool for diagnosing liver cancer," said Laurent Malier, Leti CEO. "It also leverages Leti's achievements in the Lipidots® platform, and provides another avenue for us to bring our innovations to market."

Leti is an institute of CEA, a French research-and-technology organization with activities in energy, IT, healthcare, defence and security. Leti is focused on creating value and innovation through technology transfer to its industrial partners. It is specialized in nanotechnologies and their applications, from wireless devices and systems, to biology, healthcare and photonics. NEMS and MEMS are at the core of its activities. An anchor of the MINATEC campus, CEA-Leti operates 8,000-m² of state-of-the-art clean room space on 200mm and 300mm wafer platforms. It employs 1,700 scientists and engineers including 320 Ph.D. students and 200 assignees from partner companies. CEA-Leti owns more than 2,200 patent families.

About bpifrance ’s Strategic Industrial Innovation (ISI) program

The Strategic Industrial Innovation program promotes the emergence of European champions. It supports ambitious, innovative collaborative projects through to industrialization, driven by innovative medium-sized companies (less than 5000 employees) and small businesses (less than 250 employees). These highly promising projects are aimed at the commercialization of products which result from technological breakthroughs and which not be possible without fostering measures from the public sector. Funding is generally in the €3-10 million range, as grants-in aid and loans which are repayable if the project is a success.
