NANOBIOTIX: Nanobiotix's partner, PharmaEngine, has launched a new NBTXR3 clinical trial in head and neck cancers in Asia

Nanobiotix's partner, PharmaEngine, has launched a new NBTXR3 clinical trial
in head and neck cancers in Asia

Seventh clinical trial with NBTXR3 in a new population of patients with head
and neck cancers treated with radiotherapy plus chemotherapy

Paris, France, and Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, October 20, 2016 -
NANOBIOTIX (Euronext: NANO - ISIN: FR0011341205)
, a late clinical-stage nanomedicine company pioneering novel approaches for
the local treatment of cancer, today announced that its Asia-Pacific partner,
PharmaEngine, has dosed its first patient in a new Phase I/II trial in
patients with head and neck cancers patient receiving radiotherapy plus
chemotherapy, this October. The trial is evaluating the optimal dose, safety
and preliminary efficacy of Nanobiotix's lead product.

PharmaEngine has broadened its development plan for NBTXR3 by launching this
new trial in Asia targeting a new and larger head and neck cancer patient
population. This follows the successful results from the European Phase I/II
trial in patients with head and neck cancers presented in July 2016 by
Nanobiotix demonstrating promising signs of tumor volume response and
excellent signs of safety.

NBTXR3 is now addressing a wide range of head and neck cancers patients. The
study in Asia by PharmaEngine addresses patients receiving chemotherapy
(cisplatin) plus radiotherapy whereas the study in Europe by Nanobiotix
covers patients which are not eligible for chemotherapy plus radiotherapy and
only receive radiotherapy.

Head and neck cancers include cancers of the oral cavity, tongue and
oropharynx. These cancers are a major concern for public health, with a high
worldwide prevalence, particularly in Asia, where the patient population is

This joint approach by Nanobiotix and PharmaEngine supports the preparation of
a development plan for head and neck cancers registration studies with NBTXR3
potentially in Europe, in the US and in Asia. Nanobiotix will provide this
next year.

Laurent Levy, CEO of Nanobiotix commented:"This seventh trial opens
significant potential market opportunities for
NBTRX3 by broadening the potential treatable population of head and neck
cancer patients for whom NBTXR3 may significantly improve quality of life."

About the PharmaEngine Head and Neck Phase I/II Trial in Asia

This new trial is an open-label, single arm, non-randomized study for patients
with head and neck cancers. The primary objectives of the study are to
determine the optimal dose, safety and preliminary efficacy of NBTXR3 through
intra-tumor injection in combination with concurrent chemoradiotherapy
(CCRT). The first patient was injected with NBTXR3 in October 2016 and the
maximum number of patients that will be enrolled in the study is 42.
