In vivo evaluation of CD38 and CD138 as targets for nanoparticle-based drug delivery in multiple myeloma – DocWire News

This article was originally published here

J Hematol Oncol. 2020 Nov 2;13(1):145. doi: 10.1186/s13045-020-00965-4.


BACKGROUND: Drug-loaded nanoparticles have established their benefits in the fight against multiple myeloma; however, ligand-targeted nanomedicine has yet to successfully translate to the clinic due to insufficient efficacies reported in preclinical studies.

METHODS: In this study, liposomal nanoparticles targeting multiple myeloma via CD38 or CD138 receptors are prepared from pre-synthesized, purified constituents to ensure increased consistency over standard synthetic methods. These nanoparticles are then tested both in vitro for uptake to cancer cells and in vivo for accumulation at the tumor site and uptake to tumor cells. Finally, drug-loaded nanoparticles are tested for long-term efficacy in a month-long in vivo study by tracking tumor size and mouse health.

RESULTS: The targeted nanoparticles are first optimized in vitro and show increased uptake and cytotoxicity over nontargeted nanoparticles, with CD138-targeting showing superior enhancement over CD38-targeted nanoparticles. However, biodistribution and tumor suppression studies established CD38-targeted nanoparticles to have significantly increased in vivo tumor accumulation, tumor cell uptake, and tumor suppression over both nontargeted and CD138-targeted nanoparticles due to the latters poor selectivity.

CONCLUSION: These results both highlight a promising cancer treatment option in CD38-targeted nanoparticles and emphasize that targeting success in vitro does not necessarily translate to success in vivo.

Background: The accumulation of liposome encapsulated chemotherapy in solid cancers is dependent on the presence of the enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect. Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging with a liposome encapsulated radioisotope, such as liposome encapsulated Cu-64 (64Cu-liposome) may help to identify tumors with high liposome accumulation, and thereby stratify patients based on expected benefit from liposomal chemotherapy. However, intravenous administration of liposomes without a cytotoxic content is complicated by the accelerated blood clearance (ABC) phenomenon for succeeding therapeutic liposome dosing. Alternative markers for assessing the tumors EPR level are therefore warranted.Materials and Methods: To increase our understanding of EPR variations and to ultimately identify an alternative marker for the EPR effect, we investigated the correlation between 64Cu-liposome PET/CT (EPR effect) and 68Ga-RGD PET/CT (neoangiogenesis), 18F-FDG PET/CT (glycolysis), diffusion-weighted MRI (diffusivity) and interstitial fluid pressure in two experimental cancer models (CT26 and COLO 205).Results: 64Cu-liposome and 68Ga-RGD SUVmax displayed a significant moderate correlation, however, none of the other parameters evaluated displayed significant correlations. These results indicate that differences in neoangiogenesis may explain some EPR variability, however, as correlations were only moderate and not observed for SUVmean, 68Ga-RGD is probably insufficient to serve as a stand-alone surrogate marker for quantifying the EPR effect and stratifying patients.

Keywords: EPR effect, liposome, positron emission tomography, neoangiogenesis

MagForce AG Publishes Financial Results for the First Half of 2020 and Operative Highlights –

DGAP-News: MagForce AG / Key word(s): Half Year Results30.10.2020 / 08:30 The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

MagForce AG Publishes Financial Results for the First Half of 2020 and Operative Highlights

- Very significant increase in European patient inquiries for NanoTherm therapy system for the treatment of glioblastomas

- U.S. focal prostate cancer treatment study: positive findings of Stage 1 confirmed during current Stage - positive treatment results also with the streamlined procedure

- Flexible commercialization models for focal cancer treatment centers in the U.S. in place

Berlin, Germany and Nevada, USA, October 30, 2020 - MagForce AG (Frankfurt, Scale, XETRA: MF6, ISIN: DE000A0HGQF5), a leading medical device company in the field of nanomedicine focused on oncology, published today its financial results for the first half of 2020, ending on June 30, 2020, and operative highlights.

"During the first half of 2020, we have continued to pass several major milestones and have made significant progress both in Europe with our roll-out strategy and the U.S. with the start of the next stage in our pivotal clinical study for the focal ablation of intermediate risk prostate cancer. MagForce continues to cope with the ever-evolving situation around COVID-19, nevertheless I am steadfast in my belief that by pursuing a strategy of expansion with sustainable partnerships in Europe and providing NanoTherm therapy in the U.S. to patients suffering from prostate cancer, MagForce is well positioned for the future." commented Ben Lipps, CEO of MagForce AG and MagForce USA, Inc. "At the same time, MagForce today is in a better operational position than ever before in the company's history - the number of brain tumor treatments in Europe is increasing significantly and sustainably, the interest of clinics is really high, and in the U.S. our pivotal study for the focal treatment of prostate cancer proves that our therapy is achieving the very good treatment results we had hoped for."

Operative Highlights

Europe - Brain Cancer Treatment

In the first half of 2020 we received a very significant increase in patient inquiries for NanoTherm therapy - a strong indication of how convinced MagForce's partner clinics are of the therapeutic option and its use for the treatment of glioblastomas. It can be assumed that the number of treatments will continue to increase sustainably. The global opportunity for treating glioblastoma is approximately 160,000 patients per year - indicating that this procedure has a significant global market opportunity of approximately four billion Euros per year for this treatment.

All company activities in Europe are aimed at further increasing awareness of the NanoTherm therapy system and making it available to patients. For example, the MagForce's 'NanoTherm Therapy School', a practice-oriented, unique and versatile application training course for the use of the NanoTherm therapy system for the treatment of glioblastoma, continues to be very successful. The goal of the comprehensive application training is to certify surgeons in the use of our innovative NanoTherm technology. Just this month, the third session, Module B - Part II, in the training was concluded. As seen in the registration numbers and also in participant feedback, interest in MagForce's innovative therapy is greater than ever before.

As part of the Company's European roll-out strategy, further installations of NanoActivator devices in partner hospitals in Spain and Italy are planned. The opening of these additional centers, which were planned for the second half of 2020, will be further delayed due to the enormous impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is unfortunately currently having again in these countries. However, interest from other European countries has been seen and MagForce will continue its roll-out strategy in the coming months. In addition, in Germany, the official opening of the latest NanoTherm therapy center at the Hufeland clinic in Mhlhausen is scheduled for November and, MagForce is planning another NanoTherm treatment center in Germany. All this will help us to achieve the treatment goal for 2021 and triple the number of commercial treatments compared to 2020.

Commercial Model for Brain Cancer Treatments in Europe: 'Plug-and-Treat'

To make the NanoTherm therapy system more assessable to clinics, MagForce has developed a container 'plug-and-treat' solution, which has become the delivery standard in Germany as well as in European countries. The pre-installed containers only require a dedicated outdoor space and a standard three phase current connection and are transported to the clinic by truck. MagForce delivers complete regulatory and technical documentation to the clinic administration in advance so that official approvals can be issued quickly. With this mobile 'plug-and-treat' solution the Company has been able to significantly shorten the time to start patient treatment in new centers. Currently, no more than three months from the date of order placement to commission a new NanoTherm treatment center in Germany or other European countries is expected. MagForce currently still has materials in stock for the new production of three additional devices, which will be manufactured on schedule, if required.

USA - Focal Prostate Cancer Treatment

Mirroring results on the first stage of the focal prostate cancer treatment study, treatment results in the current stage of the study, with the streamlined procedure, show only minimal treatment-related side effects that are tolerable and similar to those of biopsies. The ablation analysis showed a very well-defined ablation and cell death in the area of the nanoparticle depot, as observed in previous preclinical studies. This was expected, but is nevertheless very encouraging, as patients can be treated much faster. It is obvious that the streamlined study protocol will benefit patients by completing the entire treatment within one day, thus minimizing the burden of repeated visits to the treating physician.

We continue to expect to generate sufficient data in the fourth quarter of 2020 to confirm that our streamlined procedure has minimal side effects for patients and to gain the necessary 80 percent confidence to meet the clinical objectives needed for FDA approval. The big challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic poses to the health care system mean for our study, among other things, that for several weeks now every patient has to be tested, undergo a two-week quarantine and then be tested again. This brings an unavoidable delay to the almost completed current Stage 2a of the study, and by now we expect to complete the current stage still this year and start the final Stage 2b in January.

Commercial Model for Focal Cancer Treatment Centers in the U.S.: Lease Back Partnership

While completing the study, MagForce will begin preparations for commercialization, which is still expected to start in mid or second half of 2021. Our three MagForce USA owned and operated locations in San Antonio, Texas; Seattle, Washington; and Sarasota, Florida will be our primary locations. All three participating clinical trial sites are already fully equipped with the NanoActivator devices, a dedicated and trained staff, and would be in a position to start commercial treatments immediately. Upon completion of the study, the Company plans to have two additional proprietary treatment centers in place. Additional sites will then be opened in strategic locations in the U.S. to enable the treatment of patients locally. MagForce is already in contact with the most important "Active Surveillance Programs" throughout the country to evaluate their desire for an ambulatory NanoActivator.

MagForce USA's commercial model considers two marketing channels: 1) stand-alone Focal Cancer Treatment Centers owned and staffed by MagForce USA. This would allow MagForce USA to bill for the entire procedure as it is standard with for example dialysis treatments; 2) placement of ambulatory NanoActivators in urology clinics, providing the NanoTherm therapy system to the respective clinical site. To facilitate either channel, MagForce USA has established a sale and lease back partnership for U.S. NanoActivators with three-year term each. This will allow MagForce USA to accelerate its commercial plan.

Considering the potential global market, over 500,000 prostate cancer patients could be treated per year and benefit from an effective focal treatment with minimal side effects. The market potential would lie between 3.5 and 12.5 billion USD per year depending on the business model.

Results of operations, net assets and financial position

Revenues amounted to EUR 384 thousand, a strong increase compared to EUR 26 thousand in the previous year. The revenues were generated from the commercial treatment of patients with NanoTherm therapy in Germany in the amount of EUR 212 thousand (previous year: EUR 23 thousand) and NanoTherm and catheter deliveries to subsidiaries in the amount of EUR 173 thousand (previous year: EUR 3 thousand). A total of 11 patients were treated at the German centers and 6 patients in Lublin, Poland in the first half of 2020.

Other own work capitalized amounting to EUR 196 thousand (previous year: EUR 0 thousand) relates to capitalized expenses for preparing the product files for MagForce AG's medical products in accordance with the requirements of the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR).

Other operating income amounted to EUR 332 thousand in the reporting period and was largely at the previous year's level (EUR 329 thousand).

Cost of materials increased from EUR 194 thousand to EUR 286 thousand. The cost of raw materials, supplies and purchased goods as well as purchased services increased to the same extent.

Personnel expenses increased to EUR 2,097 thousand (previous year: EUR 1,846 thousand).

At EUR 1,667 thousand, other operating expenses were EUR 59 thousand higher than in the previous year (EUR 1,608 thousand) and were thus largely at the previous year's level.

The operating result for the first half of 2020 was EUR -3,432 thousand (previous year: EUR -3,610 thousand). The strong increase in revenues contributed significantly to the improved result.

While interest income remained constant at EUR 108 thousand (previous year: EUR 108 thousand), interest expenses rose from EUR 949 thousand to EUR 1,030 thousand due to the expansion of external financing. Write-downs on financial assets increased by EUR 61 thousand and amounted to EUR 521 thousand (previous year: EUR 460 thousand) which relates to the contributions made to finance the operating activities of the subsidiary MT MedTech Engineering GmbH.

The first half of 2020 closed with a net loss of EUR -4,877 thousand. Due to the increased revenues, the result for the period improved by EUR 35 thousand compared to the previous year (EUR -4,912 thousand).

Cash flow from operating activities amounted to EUR -2,290 thousand (previous year: EUR -2,856 thousand). The cash outflow from operating activities was derived indirectly from the net loss for the period. The cash outflows mainly relate to the financing of operating activities.

Cash flow from investing activities amounted to EUR -1,850 thousand (previous year: EUR -785 thousand) and primarily related to the contributions made to provide financial support to the subsidiary MT MedTech Engineering GmbH and payments for the construction of mobile NanoActivators as well as the expenses incurred in preparing the technical documentation for MagForce products.

Cash flow from financing activities amounted to EUR 5,653 thousand (previous year: EUR 3,325 thousand) and is mainly attributable to the payments received in connection with the external financing measures implemented. The payments received were in part offset by cash outflows in the form of interest payments.

At the end of the reporting period, the freely available liquidity amounted to EUR 1,680 thousand (December 31, 2019: EUR 167 thousand). The increase is due to the drawing of the second tranche of the EIB loan and the issue of new convertible bonds.

Transforming coronavirus protein into a nanoparticle could be key to effective COVID-19 vaccine – UB Now: News and views for UB faculty and staff -…

A UB-led research team has discovered a technique that could help increase the effectiveness of vaccines against the novel coronavirus, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Jonathan F. Lovell, associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, is the primary investigator on the research, titled SARS-CoV-2 RBD Neutralizing Antibody Induction is Enhanced by Particulate Vaccination, which was published online today in Advanced Materials.

COVID-19 has caused a disruptive global pandemic, infecting at least 40 million worldwide and causing more than 220,000 deaths in the United States alone. Since it began spreading in early 2020, biomedical researchers have been in active pursuit of an effective vaccine.

According to Lovell, one answer might lie in designing vaccines that partially mimic the structure of the virus. One of the proteins on the virus located on the characteristic COVID spike has a component called the receptor-binding domain, or RBD, which is its Achilles heel. That is,he says, antibodies against this part of the virus have the potential to neutralize the virus.

It would be appealing if a vaccine could induce high levels of antibodies against the RBD, Lovell says. One way to achieve this goal is to use the RBD protein itself as an antigen; that is, the component of the vaccine that the immune response will be directed against.

The team hypothesized that by converting the RBD into a nanoparticle (similar in size to the virus itself) instead of letting it remain in its natural form as a small protein, it would generate higher levels of neutralizing antibodies and its ability to generate an immune response would increase.

Lovells team had previously developed a technology that makes it easy to convert small, purified proteins into particles through the use of liposomes, or small nanoparticles formed from naturally occurring fatty components. In the new study, the researchers included within the liposomes a special lipid called cobalt-porphyrin-phospholipid, or CoPoP. That special lipid enables the RBD protein to rapidly bind to the liposomes,forming more nanoparticles that generate an immune response, Lovell explains.The team observed that when the RBD was converted into nanoparticles, it maintained its correct, three-dimensional shape and the particles were stable in incubation conditions similar to those in the human body. When laboratory mice and rabbits were immunized with the RBD particles, high antibody levels were induced. Compared to other materials that are combined with the RBD to enhance the immune response, only the approach with particles containing CoPoP gave strong responses.

Other vaccine adjuvant technology does not have the capacity to convert the RBD into particle-form, Lovell notes.

We think these results provide evidence to the vaccine-development community that the RBD antigen benefits a lot from being inparticle format, he says. This could help inform future vaccine design that targets this specific antigen.

Lovells co-authors on the study include Wei-Chiao Huang, Shiqi Zhou, Xuedan He and Moustafa T. Mabrouk, all from the UB Department of Biomedical Engineering; Kevin Chiem and Luis Martinez-Sobrido, both from Texas Biomedical Research Institute; Ruth H. Nissly, Ian M. Bird and Suresh V. Kuchipudi, all from the Animal Diagnostic Laboratory, Department of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences at Pennsylvania State University; Mike Strauss and Joaquin Ortega from the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at McGill University; Suryaprakash Sambhara from the Immunology and Pathogenesis Branch of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Elizabeth A. Wohlfert from the UB Department of Microbiology and Immunology; and Bruce A. Davidson from the Department of Anesthesiology and the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at UB.

Lovell founded the Lovell Lab at UB in 2012. It is focused on developing novel nanomedicine approaches to meet unmet needs in treating and preventing disease. He is also a co-founder of POP Biotechnologies Inc., a preclinical stage biotechnology company developing next-generation drug and vaccines products.

The study was supported by the U.S. National Institutes of Health and the Facility for Electron Microscopy Research (FEMR) at McGill University. FEMR is supported by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, Quebec Government and McGill.
