Why Jevtana

JEVTANA has been proven to help men live longer

JEVTANA is a prescription anti-cancer medicine that was developed specifically to help men with advanced prostate cancer live longer. It is used with a steroid medicine prednisone once the cancer has worsened following other anti-cancer medicines, including docetaxel (a type of anti-cancer infusion medicine).

JEVTANA was developed specifically to treat men with advanced prostate cancer, also known as metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), since 2010. It is recommended by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) based on a high level of medical evidence if docetaxel is no longer working.

JEVTANA TARGETS CELLS THAT DIVIDE QUICKLY, INCLUDING CANCER CELLS

JEVTANA travels through the body attacking rapidly dividing cells, including cancer cells. As a result, the cancer cells may die, and the tumors may stop growing.

Extends Survival

JEVTANA may help you to live longer by reducing your risk of death.

Shrinks Tumors

JEVTANA may slow the growth of your cancer by shrinking tumors.

Works When Docetaxel Doesn't

JEVTANA may prolong your survival and shrink your tumors even if docetaxel is no longer working.

DISCUSS POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS

JEVTANA can affect not just cancerous cells, but also some of the healthy cells. This may cause side effects. Before you start JEVTANA, talk to your healthcare provider about potential side effects. There are ways to help address certain side effects, including serious side effects like low white blood cell count, severe diarrhea, severe allergic reactions, and kidney failure.

HEAR FROM PEOPLE WHO CHOSE JEVTANA

Meet Larry and Joyce and learn how a second opinion by an oncologist changed their outlook.

…I could tell that things weren’t working. My PSA was going up. I did MRIs, and CAT scans and everything. I figure you only have one life. And so I decided, you know, I need another opinion.

My perception changed because I feel like I'm getting some help now.
