RefleXion Medical Expands Commercial Reach With Sale to Texas Cancer Center

RefleXion Medical, Inc., a therapeutic oncology company pioneering biology-guided radiotherapy* (BgRT) as a new modality that will one day treat all stages of cancer, today announced the sale of its RefleXion™ X1 machine to The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, a free-standing cancer treatment center with 15 locations throughout northern Texas.

“We are thrilled to bring the promise of biology-guided radiotherapy to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex,” said Barry Russo, CEO of The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. “We have a long history of offering our patients the latest advances in cancer therapies, clinical trials and cancer research, and BgRT continues this convention. The multi-modality nature of the RefleXion X1 machine will allow us to eventually offer advanced radiotherapy for all stages of solid tumor cancers, even in cancers where it has been traditionally infeasible to do so.”

The RefleXion X1 machine is cleared for clinical use in stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), and forms of conventional radiotherapy indicated for early-stage cancers, or palliative relief of symptoms for later-stage cancers. BgRT, currently under development, is designed to treat both early and late-stage cancers.

BgRT uses biological emissions from a patient’s cancer cells created by injecting a small amount of a targeting molecule carrying a positron-emitting radioisotope known as a PET tracer to guide radiotherapy. As the PET tracer binds to the tumor cells, it produces emissions that signal the cancer’s location. The RefleXion X1 machine detects these emissions using PET detectors and responds in real-time to direct radiotherapy to each tumor and destroy it, even in moving tumors.

“We are gratified by the commitment and enthusiasm of the clinicians at The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders for our RefleXion X1 platform,” said Todd Powell, president and CEO at RefleXion Medical. “This sale expands our commercial momentum into the southern United States, a large and growing market known for embracing new technologies that deliver cutting-edge patient care.”

Installation of the RefleXion X1 machine, which will be located at the main campus in Fort Worth, is expected to begin in early 2022.

Dr. Sachita Shah, Sr. Director, Global Health, Butterfly Network, "Butterfly is proud to continue improving maternal health equity through Phase Two of the largest-scale handheld ultrasound distribution and training ever conducted in Sub-Saharan Africa. South Africa is an emerging market that continues to have disproportionately high rates of maternal mortality and stillbirth. Patients need easier access to antenatal imaging, and clinicians need better capabilities for screening high-risk conditions that lead to disproportionately worse pregnancy outcomes in rural areas in the public sector. Together with CHAI and GUSI, we can tackle this by making ultrasound much more accessible, so high-risk conditions can be identified earlier in care, which is known to improve outcomes.”
The clinical Study will enroll up to 97 patients at up to 12 European investigational sites. Completion of the study is expected this year, and results will support CE mark and pre-market approval submissions reports Vivasure Medical.
Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”
