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.

JEVTANA has been helping men combat advanced prostate cancer, also known as metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), since 2010. It is recommended as a treatment following progression on docetaxel by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) based on a high-level of medical evidence.

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.


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