"Radiation enteritis is a serious complication for colorectal cancer patients receiving radiation therapy that impacts their quality of life and can require treatment modification," stated William Small, Jr., MD, FACRO, FACR, FASTRO Professor and Vice Chairman, Department of Radiation Oncology, Associate Medical Director, Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, and a Principal Investigator for the Phase 1/2 clinical study. "Based on oral BDP's proven pharmacology in treating severe gastrointestinal inflammation, SGX201 represents a potential prophylactic option that would enable physicians/patients to maintain planned treatment regimens to battle the underlying malignancy. I find these exploratory data encouraging and I look forward to continuing to work with Soligenix on the continued development of SGX201 in this area of great unmet medical need."

About Acute Radiation Enteritis

Acute radiation enteritis is caused by radiation-induced death of cells in the lining of the bowel. As bowel cells die and are not replaced, gastrointestinal toxicity develops due to an inflammatory response to dead cells and bacteria, with diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and pain prominent symptoms. The addition of chemotherapy may exacerbate the intestinal symptoms and itself cause significant toxicity. This treatment-related enteritis can result in delay or interruption of the cancer treatment. There are over 100,000 patients annually in the United States who receive abdominal or pelvic external beam radiation treatment for cancer, and these patients are at risk of developing radiation enteritis.
