RefleXion Highlights New Research at ASTRO 2020 Evaluating Feasibility of Biology-guided Radiotherapy to Treat Metastatic Cancer
October 22, 2020
Growing Body of Clinical Evidence Enabling BgRT Doubles in 12 Months
HAYWARD, Calif.— 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.”

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 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 RefleXion™ X1 is cleared for SBRT/SRS/IMRT treatments. BgRT is limited by U.S. law to Investigational use.
