Modufolin® development

Modufolin® is a folate-based bio-modulator designed to replace leucovorin/levoleucovorin as the preferred treatment to enhance the activity and reduce associated toxicity of the widely used cancer chemotherapeutic agent 5-FU (5-flluorouracil). It is currently being evaluated in three Phase I/II studies, two in colorectal cancer and one in osteosarcoma.
Although several modern chemo drugs have been introduced that dramatically improve the treatment of many cancer diseases, they show limited effect in treating solid tumors. 5-FU and leucovorin/levoleucovorin is still the core treatment used today for colorectal cancer and Modufolin® has the potential to enable 5-FU to work more effectively.

6/2/2016: Isofol Medical AB today announced initiation of the next dose level of Modufolin®, in combination with 5-FU and oxaliplatin or 5-FU and irinotecan, in the ongoing, incremental dose cohort, phase I/II clinical trial, ISO-CC-005. In total 16 patients with stage IV colorectal cancer have successfully completed their treatment with Modufolin® at 30 mg/m2. Isofol has now initiated a second dose level of Modufolin®, 60mg/m2, in combination with 5-FU and oxaliplatin or 5-FU and irinotecan. This is a safety study evaluating four different doses of Modufolin® with the intention to identify the dose with most favourable tolerability.
