The research evaluates the feasibility of biology-guided radiotherapy to treat metastatic cancer

October 24, 2020 — RefleXion Medical, a therapeutic oncology company pioneering biology-guided radiotherapy* (BgRT) as a new modality for treating all stages of cancer, today announced that eight clinical abstracts evaluating the use of its novel technology were accepted for presentation during the virtual American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) 2020 Annual Meeting, Oct. 24-28.

“We are thrilled to have eight abstracts from leading academic clinicians highlighting our technology,” said Sean Shirvani, M.D., senior vice president of Clinical and Medical Affairs at RefleXion. “The presentations will share new data on the potential of BgRT for targeting tumors in diverse anatomic locations and from varied histologies, including non-small cell lung, prostate and pancreatic cancers. The investigations also explore the exciting opportunity of leveraging PET information as a future biomarker with BgRT.

“Through our clinical partnerships, we continue to produce comprehensive, evidence-based research that builds on the strong foundation of previously published studies,” continued Shirvani. “We believe the RefleXion X1 can form the backbone of any radiotherapy clinic, as it delivers IMRT/SBRT/SRS and unlocks opportunities for procedural growth with BgRT in local and metastatic disease.”

The following presentations taking place during ASTRO 2020 evaluate RefleXion’s novel technology:
