The global-in-time existence of renormalized solutions to reaction-cross-diﬀusion systems for an arbitrary number of variables in bounded domains with no-ﬂux bound-ary conditions is proved. The cross-diﬀusion part describes the segregation of population species and is a generalization of the Shigesada-Kawasaki-Teramoto model. The diﬀusion matrix is not diagonal and generally neither symmetric nor positive semideﬁnite, but the system possesses a formal gradient-ﬂow or entropy structure. The reaction part includes reversible reactions of massaction kinetics and does not obey any growth condition. The existence result generalizes both the condition on the reaction part required in the boundedness-by-entropy method and the proof of J. Fischer for reaction-diﬀusion systems with diagonal diﬀusion matrices.
