Modufolin® (arfolitixorin) is a treatment for advanced colorectal cancer and is suitable for all patients irrespective of their capacity to activate folates. The active ingredient [6R]-5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate, is a novel folate-based compound developed to increase the efficacy and reduce the side effects of antimetabolites used in cancer treatment. It is the key active metabolite of the widely used folate-based drugs leucovorin and levoleucovorin. As Modufolin® (arfolitixorin) does not require metabolic activation to exert its effect, Modufolin® is suitable for all patients irrespective of their capacity to activate folates.
