What is HALAVEN®?

HALAVEN is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with liposarcoma (a type of soft tissue sarcoma) that cannot be treated with surgery or that has spread to other parts of the body. Patients should have previously received an anthracycline-containing anticancer treatment for advanced or metastatic disease.

HALAVEN is developed from a natural substance found in a sea sponge, and is the only medicine discovered in its class of chemotherapy. Based on early laboratory studies, HALAVEN works by limiting the growth of cancer cells, and ultimately killing them.
