RenovoRx to Present Preclinical Research Data Demonstrating its Innovative Therapy Platform’s Potential Utility for the Treatment of Bile Duct Cancer
Study to be Presented at the Global Embolization Oncology Symposium Technologies (GEST) 2022
Excerpt from the Press Release:
LOS ALTOS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RenovoRx, Inc. (“RenovoRx” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: RNXT), a biopharmaceutical company and innovator in targeted cancer therapy, today announces that it will present preclinical research supporting its planned second clinical indication, bile duct cancer, also known as cholangiocarcinoma, at the Global Embolization Oncology Symposium Technologies (GEST) 2022, today in New York City. The study demonstrates the potential utility of RenovoRx’s proprietary Trans-Arterial Micro-Perfusion (RenovoTAMPTM) therapy platform for the treatment of cholangiocarcinoma.
Cholangiocarcinoma is a rare and aggressive cancer that forms in the bile ducts — thin tubes that carry a digestive fluid, called bile, from the liver to other digestive organs. Most people with cholangiocarcinoma do not have symptoms until the disease becomes more advanced, making early diagnoses difficult. Like pancreatic cancer, which the Company is evaluating in a Phase 3 study, bile duct tumors that grow outside of the liver lack tumor feeder blood vessels, which provide a pathway between the blood stream and the tumor. Tumor feeders are critical to the effectiveness of systemic chemotherapy. Published research supports that without direct access to the tumor, systemic chemotherapy circulates through the body, without a significant amount of chemotherapy reaching the tumor.
RenovoRx plans to launch a Phase 2/3 study in cholangiocarcinoma in the second half of 2022. The Company also received Orphan Drug Designation for this clinical indication in April 2021.
