Additionally, Dr. Pishvaian will be presenting new secondary endpoint data from the TIGeR-PaC study interim analysis in a late-breaking oral presentation at the upcoming ESMO World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer (ESMO GI). The Phase III study has a primary endpoint of overall survival and several secondary endpoints, including progression-free survival (PFS). The study is designed to randomize 114 patients. Final analysis will be conducted after 86 events (deaths) from the stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) population. The study includes two planned interim analyses, the first upon 30% (26 of 86) of total events and the second upon 60% (52 of 86) of total events.
ESMO GI will be held June 28 – July 1, 2023, in Barcelona, Spain, with the presentation scheduled for Thursday, June 29, 2023, at 8:50 AM CEST.

About the TIGeR-PaC Study
TIGeR-PaC is a randomized multi-center Phase III open label clinical trial designed to investigate the Company’s first product candidate, RenovoGem™, which utilizes RenovoRx’s proprietary therapy platform, TAMP™, to provide targeted intra-arterial delivery of FDA-approved chemotherapy, gemcitabine, to treat locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC) following stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). The study is comparing treatment with TAMP versus standard of care systemic intravenous (IV) administration of gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel. The study is designed to randomize 114 patients (57 in each arm) with all patients receiving upfront induction chemotherapy and SBRT. Final analysis will be conducted after 86 protocol-specified events have occurred in the SBRT population with two planned interim analyses: the first analysis when 30% of the specified events has been reported and the second analysis when 60% of the events have been reported (expected in mid-2024).
TIGeR-PaC is currently enrolling unresectable LAPC patients at several sites across the US. To learn more about the study and the participating clinical trial sites, visit https://renovorx.com/clinical-trial/.
RenovoGem™ is the first drug-device combination product candidate that utilizes the TAMP™ therapy platform via pressure-mediated delivery technology to deliver gemcitabine, an FDA-approved chemotherapy, locally across the arterial wall to bathe tumor tissue in the chemotherapy. RenovoGem is currently being evaluated in the open label, randomized Phase III TIGeR-PaC clinical trial study in Locally Advanced Pancreatic Cancer (LAPC) patients. The Company plans to investigate RenovoGem in extrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma (eCCA) in a clinical trial, which is anticipated to begin in the first half of 2023.
