PARIS & CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
NANOBIOTIX (Paris:NANO) (Euronext: NANO - ISIN: FR0011341205 – the “Company”), a clinical-stage nanomedicine company pioneering new approaches to the treatment of cancer, today announced the upcoming presentation of data from spinoff company Curadigm at the 2020 Virtual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) . The results demonstrate that Curadigm’s novel “Nanoprimer” technology can improve the efficacy of therapeutics delivers intravenously (IV). In the study, the Nanoprimer was paired with RNA-based therapeutics and showed to improve treatment outcomes up to 50%.
Most therapeutics delivered through IV are limited in their efficacy resulting from biological barriers to distribution throughout the body, primarily the liver and spleen. Due to these barriers, only a fraction of an administered dose remains available for therapeutic action, while the majority is useless and potentially toxic to the organs. This dynamic is particularly challenging in the development of nanomedicines and RNA-based therapeutics, as they face difficulty achieving efficient accumulation in target tissues.
Curadigm’s Nanoprimer seeks to redefine the therapeutic balance between the dose that is cleared and the available does by precisely, but transiently occupying clearance pathways within the liver. When paired with treatments such as siRNA and mRNA, the Nanoprimer enables increased accumulation in target tissues without increasing toxicity within clearance organs. The AACR results provide validation of Curadigm’s approach to increasing bioavailability and efficacy when paired with RNA therapeutics. Beyond nucleic acid, Nanoprimer technology is broadly applicable across multiple drug classes including nanomedicines and gene editing technologies.
