Arfolitixorin is a new drug developed to increase the efficacy of the cytotoxic agent 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and as a rescue drug after high-dose methotrexate treatment. The active ingredient in arfolitixorin, [6R]-5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate, is the key active metabolite of the widely used folate-based drugs leucovorin and levoleucovorin. Arfolitixorin is suitable for all patients irrespective of their capacity to activate folates since it does not require metabolic activation to exert its effect.
