Vinflunine (INN, trade name Javlor) is a novel fluorinated Vinca alkaloid undergoing research for the treatment of bladder cancer. It was originally discovered by the team of the Professor Jean-Claude Jacquesy (UMR CNRS 6514 - Poitiers University), developed by Laboratoires Pierre Fabre and was licensed to Bristol-Myers Squibb for development in certain countries, including the United States.
As of 2016 In some countries, vinflunine is the only commercially approved agent for salvage therapy of urothelial carcinoma, (with approval based on the results of a phase III trial), with a reported median OS of about 6 months.
It has undergone a phase III clinical trial for advanced transitional cell carcinoma of the urothelial tract.
