About JAVLOR(R) (vinflunine):

Discovered by scientists at the Pierre Fabre Research Center, vinflunine is a new bi-fluorinated MTI (Microtubule inhibitor) obtained by chemistry exploiting the reactivity of Vinca scaffold in superacidic media. Such strategy, finalized in collaboration with experts at the University of Poitiers (France), enabled the selective introduction of two fluorine atoms in a part of that structure previously inaccessible by classic chemistry, thereby leading to the first bi-fluorinated vinca alkaloid.

Besides its original structure, JAVLOR(R) exhibits unique pharmacological properties and is also devoid of any unpredictable major toxicity and does not induce cumulative toxicity.

Its every 3 weeks administration enables convenient hospital treatment on an out patient basis (a 20 minutes infusion without any IV premedication).

JAVLOR(R) 25 mg/ml solution for infusion has been approved as monotherapy for the treatment of adult patients with advanced or metastatic transitional cell carcinoma of the urothelial tract after failure of a prior platinum-containing regimen.
