efaproxiral 
A synthetic small molecule with radiosensitizing activity. Efaproxiral increases oxygen levels in hypoxic tumor tissues by binding non-covalently to the hemoglobin tetramer and decreasing hemoglobin-oxygen binding affinity. Increasing tumor oxygenation reduces tumor radioresistance. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
Code name:RSR13
