VYNFINIT® (Vintafolide) Cancer*

Designed to target the folate receptor to deliver potent chemotherapy

Vynfinit® (Vintafolide) delivers a potent vinca alkaloid chemotherapy directly to cancer cells by targeting the folate receptor expressed on cancer cells, but not on most normal cells. Approximately 80–90% of ovarian and lung cancers express the receptor, as do many other types of cancer. Folate receptor status is determined by a Folcepri® (99mTc-etarfolatide) scan.
