Los Altos, CA, June 2, 2022 – RenovoRx, Inc. (Nasdaq: RNXT), a biopharmaceutical company and innovator in targeted cancer therapy, today announced that it will participate in the Gateway to Translation Webinar Series hosted by the University of Cambridge’s Academy of Therapeutic Sciences (CATS) on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 at 1:00 PM ET. Dr. Ramtin Agah, Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder of RenovoRx, will present a seminar, “Localized Intra-arterial Drug Delivery for Treatment of Solid Tumors.” To register for this seminar, click here.
During his presentation, Dr. Agah will discuss current available treatment options for pancreatic tumors and why they can fall short of providing an effective solution for treating this deadly disease. He will also discuss how the RenovoRx Trans-Arterial Micro-Perfusion (RenovoTAMP®) therapy platform re-envisions the treatment of pancreatic and other difficult-to-treat cancers, as well as the scientific rationale underlying its development. The seminar will be chaired by Prof. Saeb-Parsy, Professor of Transplantation at the University of Cambridge, and will be followed by a live Q&A session.
“It is an honor to present at the upcoming Gateway to Translation Seminar Series at the University of Cambridge. I would like to thank Prof. Saeb-Parsy, Cambridge’s Academy of Therapeutic Sciences (CATS) and the University for the opportunity to share RenovoRx’s progress in this vital area of research,” said Dr. Agah. “The development of our therapy platform was the result of challenging the traditional boundaries in medicine – we identified a gap in the standard of care for pancreatic and similar difficult-to-treat cancers and designed the RenovoTAMP therapy platform, which is now in a Phase 3 clinical trial. Our Phase 1/2 and observational registry studies have demonstrated the potential for localized treatment of pancreatic cancer to decrease side effects typical of systemic chemotherapy, and importantly, improve patient survival. RenovoRx represents the mission of CATS and the potential for innovation through collaboration across medical disciplines and between academics and industry.”
A recording of this presentation will be posted to the RenovoRx Website Events page when it becomes available.
