Spectrum announced that the FDA has approved an additional manufacturing facility for the production of Fusilev (levoleucovorin) for injection. Spectrum has continued to increase the number of qualified third-party manufacturing sites approved for Fusilev production since its approval to ensure long-term supply.

Fusilev, a folate analogue, was recently approved for use in combination chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil in the palliative treatment of patients with advanced metastatic colorectal cancer. Fusilev is also indicated for rescue after high-dose methotrexate therapy in osteosarcoma, and to diminish the toxicity and counteract the effects of impaired methotrexate elimination and of inadvertent overdosage of folic acid antagonists.
