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. Read more about Modufolin
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.
