RefleXion Medical, a therapeutic oncology company pioneering biology-guided radiotherapy* (BgRT) as a new modality for treating all stages of cancer, today announced multiple clinical abstracts evaluating the potential use and utility of its novel technology were accepted for presentation during the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) 2021 Annual Meeting, Oct. 24-27, in Chicago

October 22, 2021  — RefleXion Medical, a therapeutic oncology company pioneering biology-guided radiotherapy* (BgRT) as a new modality for treating all stages of cancer, today announced multiple clinical abstracts evaluating the potential use and utility of its novel technology were accepted for presentation during the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) 2021 Annual Meeting, Oct. 24-27, in Chicago. The company will showcase technology from the RefleXion X1 machine in its booth, #1309.

“Particularly gratifying among our multiple abstracts are oral presentations demonstrating physical validation of biological guidance for delivering radiotherapy to an FDG-avid target and exploring whether novel prostate surface membrane antigen radiotracers hold promise for one day enabling BgRT in prostate cancer,” said Shervin ‘Sean’ Shirvani, M.D., M.P.H., chief medical officer at RefleXion. “Also, our earliest clinical adopters are presenting work detailing commissioning of the very first commercial X1 machine, which has delivered hundreds of fractions of conventional radiotherapy, a critical step toward bringing BgRT to the clinic.”

The following presentations taking place during ASTRO 2021 evaluate RefleXion’s X1 technology:
