RefleXion Highlights New Cancer Treatment Research at ASTRO 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 RefleXiontm 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:

Sunday, Oct 24: Radiation and Cancer Physics

Monday, Oct 25, 11:20 AM: Radiation and Cancer Physics

Tuesday, Oct 26:

Wednesday, Oct. 27, 10:30 AM: Poster Q&A 09 ? Session 09 ? Physics Treatment Techniques and Patient Safety (Outside Room 375)

About RefleXion Medical

RefleXion is a privately-held therapeutic oncology company developing the first biology-guided radiotherapy (BgRT) machine, with the potential to move beyond single tumor therapy to one day treat multiple metastatic tumors throughout the body in the same treatment session. Currently, the RefleXion X1 machine is cleared for the delivery of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). The company is also developing BgRT, which incorporates positron-emission tomography (PET) data to enable tumors to continuously signal their location. The BgRT technology will synchronize these data with the linear accelerator to direct radiotherapy to tumors with sub-second latency.

*The RefleXiontm X1 is cleared for SBRT/SRS/IMRT treatments. BgRT is limited by U.S. law to investigational use.
