1 Indications And Usage
JELMYTO™ is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with low-grade Upper Tract Urothelial Cancer (LG-UTUC).
2.1 Important Administration Instructions
See the Instructions for Administration provided separately. JELMYTO is for pyelocalyceal use only. JELMYTO is not for intravenous use, topical use, or oral administration. Prior to every instillation, instruct the patient to take 1.3 g of sodium bicarbonate orally the evening prior to, the morning of, and 30 minutes prior to the instillation procedure (total of 3.9 g). General anesthesia, local anesthesia, sedation, prophylactic antibiotics and/or antihistamines may be used at the discretion of the treating urologist. If the patient is to be anesthetized, advise the patient not to take sodium bicarbonate within 30 minutes prior to the treatment.Consider withholding diuretics one day prior to instillation until 4 hours post-instillation.When instilling JELMYTO, the entire syringe must be emptied within one minute.Advise patients that JELMYTO may discolor urine to a violet to blue color following the instillation procedure. Advise patients to avoid contact with urine for at least six hours post-instillation, to void urine sitting on a toilet, and to flush the toilet several times after use.
2.2 Recommended Dosage
The dose of JELMYTO to be instilled is 4 mg per mL via ureteral catheter or a nephrostomy tube, with total instillation volume based on volumetric measurements using pyelography, not to exceed 15 mL (60 mg of mitomycin). Instill JELMYTO once weekly for six weeks. For patients with a complete response 3 months after JELMYTO initiation, JELMYTO instillations may be administered once a month for a maximum of 11 additional instillations.
2.3 Preparation And Handling
See the Instructions for Pharmacy for preparation provided separately.JELMYTO is a cytotoxic drug. Follow applicable special handling and disposal procedures.1 JELMYTO must be prepared under chilled conditions. Once reconstituted, the admixture will have a concentration of 4 mg of mitomycin per mL and will appear as a viscous liquid for instillation. Reconstituted JELMYTO has reverse thermal properties with a gelation point of approximately 19°C (66°F). Reconstituted JELMYTO should be instilled as soon as possible after reconstitution. If immediate instillation is not possible store reconstituted JELMYTO at 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F) for up to 8 hours. JELMYTO will appear as a semisolid gel when stored under these conditions. Protect reconstituted JELMYTO from light.JELMYTO must be instilled as a chilled solution using a Uroject12 Lever, a Luer lock syringe, and a ureteral catheter with molded Luer lock connector. Once chilled at -3°C to 5°C (27°F to 41°F), JELMYTO will convert to a viscous liquid for instillation and is stable for up to 1 additional hour. Reconstituted JELMYTO must be instilled within 1 hour after it is converted to a viscous liquid.
3 Dosage Forms And Strengths
- For pyelocalyceal solution: A single-dose carton containing the following:Two 40 mg (each) single-dose vials of sterile, lyophilized, grey to greyish-purple, cake or powder of mitomycin for pyelocalyceal solutionOne single-dose vial of 20 mL of sterile, clear, colorless, gel with or without bubbles at room temperature or clear, colorless liquid at 2°C to 8°C (36°F to 46°F), to be used as a vehicle for reconstitution
- JELMYTO is contraindicated in patients with:perforation of the bladder or upper urinary tract.
5.1 Ureteric Obstruction
Ureteric obstruction, including ureteral stenosis and hydronephrosis, occurred in patients receiving JELMYTO. In the OLYMPUS study, ureteric obstruction was reported in 58% (n=41) of patients receiving JELMYTO, including 17% (n=12) of patients who experienced Grade 3 obstruction. The median time to first onset was 72 days (range: 15-462). Interventions in the 41 patients experiencing ureteric obstruction included ureteral stent placement (88%), balloon dilatation (32%), and nephroureterectomy (4.9%). In the 36 patients who required ureteral stent placement, the median duration of indwelling stents was 51 days (range: 1-292). Ureteric obstruction did not resolve or resolved with sequelae in 51% (n=21) of these patients. Of the 41 patients who experienced ureteric obstruction, 17% (n=7) experienced Grades 1-2 increase in serum creatinine.In the 42 patients who only received JELMYTO during the treatment phase (no maintenance therapy), ureteric obstruction was reported in 40% (n=17).Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of ureteric obstruction, including flank pain, and fever, and for changes in renal function. Patients who experience obstruction may require transient or long-term ureteral stents or alternative procedures. Withhold or permanently discontinue JELMYTO based on the severity of ureteric obstruction.
5.2 Bone Marrow Suppression
The use of JELMYTO can result in bone marrow suppression, particularly thrombocytopenia and neutropenia. In the OLYMPUS study, Grade 3 thrombocytopenia occurred in two patients and Grade 3 neutropenia in one patient. Gross extravasation of JELMYTO via urinary tract perforation or impaired mucosa was not observed in these patients. The following tests should be obtained prior to each treatment: Platelet count, white blood cell count differential and hemoglobin. Withhold JELMYTO for Grade 2 thrombocytopenia or neutropenia. Permanently discontinue for Grade 3 or greater thrombocytopenia or neutropenia.
5.3 Embryo-Fetal Toxicity
Based on findings in animals and mechanism of action, JELMYTO can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. In animal reproduction studies, administration of mitomycin resulted in teratogenicity. Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with JELMYTO and for 6 months following the last dose. Advise male patients with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with JELMYTO and for 3 months following the last dose [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1, 8.3) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)].
6 Adverse Reactions
- The following clinically significant adverse reactions are discussed in greater detail in other sections of the labeling:Ureteric Obstruction [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)]Bone Marrow Suppression [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)]
6.1 Clinical Trials Experience
Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect rates observed in practice.The safety of JELMYTO was evaluated in OLYMPUS, an open-label, single-arm study in 71 patients with LG-UTUC [see Clinical Studies (14)]. For the 71 patients treated with JELMYTO during the treatment period, the median number of instillations was 6 (range: 3-6). Following initial treatment, 29 patients were treated with up to 11 doses of maintenance instillations, with a median of 6 instillations (range: 0-11).Serious adverse reactions occurred in 37% of patients who received JELMYTO. Serious adverse reactions in > 3% of patients included ureteric obstruction (including ureteric stenosis and hydronephrosis), flank pain, and urosepsis. Two deaths occurred due to cerebrovascular accident and failure to thrive.JELMYTO was permanently discontinued due to an adverse reaction in 16 (23%) patients, including 11 patients who discontinued during the treatment phase and 5 who discontinued during the maintenance phase. Adverse reactions resulting in study drug discontinuation of JELMYTO in > 3% of patients who received JELMYTO included ureteric obstruction.Dosage interruptions due to an adverse reaction occurred in 34% of patients who received JELMYTO. Adverse reactions requiring dosage interruption in > 3% of patients who received JELMYTO included renal dysfunction, ureteric obstruction, urinary tract infection, and flank pain.The most common adverse reactions (≥ 20%) reported were ureteric obstruction, flank pain, urinary tract infection, hematuria, renal dysfunction, fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain, dysuria, and vomiting.Table 1 summarizes the adverse reactions in OLYMPUS.Table 1: Adverse Reactions (≥ 10% All Grades) in Patients Who Received JELMYTO in OLYMPUSAdverse ReactionJELMYTOGraded per National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events.

Risk SummaryBased on findings in animals and mechanism of action, JELMYTO can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)]. There are no available data on JELMYTO use in pregnant women to inform the drug-associated risk. In animal reproduction studies, administration of mitomycin resulted in teratogenicity (see Data). Advise pregnant women of the potential risk to a fetus.The estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2% - 4% and 15% - 20%, respectively.
Animal DataTeratological changes have been noted with mitomycin in animal studies.
Risk SummaryThere are no data on the presence of mitomycin in human milk, the effects on the breastfed child, or the effects on milk production. Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in a breastfed child, advise women not to breastfeed during treatment with JELMYTO and for 1 week following the last dose.
Pregnancy TestingVerify pregnancy status in females of reproductive potential prior to initiating JELMYTO.
FemalesAdvise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with JELMYTO and for 6 months following the last dose.
MalesAdvise male patients with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with JELMYTO and for 3 months following the last dose.
AbsorptionThe systemic exposure of mitomycin following instillation of up to 60 mg of mitomycin as JELMYTO into the pyelocalyceal system was evaluated pre-instillation and hourly for up to six hours post- instillation in six patients. The concentrations of mitomycin in plasma were variable and ranged from 2.43 to 12.80 ng/mL over the course of treatment; the mean Cmax was 6.24 ng/mL, which is estimated to be less than 1% of the expected Cmax after intravenous administration.
EliminationFollowing instillation into the pyelocalyceal system, JELMYTO forms a semisolid gel which dissolves from normal kidney urine flow releasing mitomycin for up to 4 to 6 hours. Mitomycin is eliminated unchanged in the urine. Systemically absorbed mitomycin is rapidly cleared from the serum and approximately 10% is excreted unchanged in the urine.
MetabolismMitomycin is metabolized primarily in the liver, but metabolism occurs in other tissues as well. It is believed that the rate of clearance is inversely proportional to the maximal serum concentration because of saturation of the degradative pathways.
Ureteric Obstruction Inform patients that ureteric obstruction may occur, and ureteral stents or alternative procedures may be required during treatment with JELMYTO. Advise patients to contact their healthcare provider immediately if signs and symptoms of ureteric obstruction, including flank pain and/or fever, occur [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].
Bone Marrow SuppressionInform patients that JELMYTO may decrease blood counts such as white blood cells and platelets. Thus, it is important that periodic assessment of their blood count be performed to detect the development of neutropenia and thrombocytopenia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)].
Embryo-Fetal ToxicityAdvise pregnant women and females of reproductive potential of the potential risk to a fetus. Advise females to inform their healthcare providers of a known or suspected pregnancy [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3) and Use in Specific Population (8.1)].Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with JELMYTO and for 6 months following the last dose [see Use in Specific Populations (8.3)].Advise male patients with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with JELMYTO and for 3 months following the last dose [see Use in Specific Populations (8.3)].
LactationAdvise women not to breastfeed during treatment with JELMYTO and for 1 week following the last dose [see Use in Specific Populations (8.2)].
Important Post-Treatment Instructions [see Dosage and Administration (2.1)].Advise patients that JELMYTO contains mitomycin which is a violet to blue color and may discolor urine following the instillation procedure. Advise patients to avoid contact with urine for at least six hours post-instillation. Advise patients to void sitting on a toilet, flush the toilet several times after use, and to wash hands, perineum or glans with soap and water after each instillation procedure. Advise patients to wash clothing soiled with urine promptly and separately from other clothing.

8.3 Females And Males Of Reproductive Potential
JELMYTO can cause fetal harm when administered to pregnant women [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)].
8.4 Pediatric Use
Safety and efficacy in pediatric patients have not been established.
8.5 Geriatric Use
Of the total number of patients in the OLYMPUS trial, 75% (53 patients) were 65 years of age and over and 37% (26 patients) were 75 year of age and over. Clinical studies of JELMYTO did not include sufficient numbers of younger patients less than 65 years old to determine whether they respond differently from older patients.
8.6 Renal Impairment
No data are available in patients with severe renal impairment. Avoid use of JELMYTO in patients with a Glomerular Filtration Rate of < 30 mL/min.
Mitomycin (also known as mitomycin-C) is an alkylating drug isolated from the broth of Streptomyces caespitosus. Mitomycin is a blue-violet crystalline powder with a molecular formula of C15H18N4O5, and a molecular weight of 334.33. Its chemical name is 7-amino-9α-methoxymitosane and it has the following structural formula:Mitomycin is heat stable, has a high melting point, and is freely soluble in organic solvents.JELMYTO is supplied in a single-dose carton containing two vials of sterile lyophilized mitomycin for pyelocalyceal solution, 40 mg each, and one vial of 20 mL of sterile hydrogel, to be used as a vehicle for reconstitution.Mitomycin for pyelocalyceal solution is a sterile, lyophilized, grey to greyish-purple, cake or powder that contains mitomycin 40 mg and mannitol 80 mg in each vial.Sterile hydrogel is a sterile, clear, colorless, gel with or without bubbles at room temperature or clear, colorless liquid at 2°C to 8°C (36°F to 46°F), which contains 0.04 g hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, 5.67 g poloxamer, 0.21 g polyethylene glycol, and water for injection in each vial.Once reconstituted, JELMYTO is a clear, purple, viscous liquid at 2°C to 8°C (36°F to 46°F) or semisolid gel at room temperature with a concentration of 4 mg per mL of mitomycin, which may contain a few visible particles and have a pH between 6.0 and 8.0.
12.1 Mechanism Of Action
Mitomycin inhibits the synthesis of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The guanine and cytosine content correlates with the degree of mitomycin-induced cross-linking. At high concentrations of the drug, cellular RNA and protein synthesis are also suppressed.
There is insufficient data to characterize an exposure-response relationship or time course of pharmacodynamic response for mitomycin.
13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment Of Fertility
Adequate long-term studies in animals to evaluate carcinogenic potential from instillation of mitomycin into the pyelocalyceal system have not been conducted. Mitomycin has been found to be carcinogenic in rats and mice. At doses approximating the recommended intravenous clinical dose in humans, mitomycin produced a greater than 100% increase in tumor incidence in male Sprague-Dawley rats, and a greater than 50% increase in tumor incidence in female Swiss mice.The effect of JELMYTO on fertility is unknown.
14 Clinical Studies
The efficacy of JELMYTO is based on the results of the ongoing study OLYMPUS (NCT02793128), an open-label, single-arm, multicenter trial that enrolled 71 patients with treatment-naïve or recurrent non-invasive low-grade upper tract urothelial cancer (LG-UTUC) with at least one measurable papillary tumor 5 to ≤ 15 mm located above the ureteropelvic junction; patients who had larger tumors could have had tumor debulking prior to treatment, in order to meet the criteria. Patients were excluded from the trial for a history of carcinoma in situ (CIS) in the urinary tract, invasive urothelial carcinoma within 5 years, high grade papillary urothelial carcinoma within 2 years; or for BCG treatment within 6 months of JELMYTO treatment. Following biopsy and prior to treatment, patients were required to have at least one remaining visible tumor with a diameter of at least 5 mm.Patients received JELMYTO 4 mg per mL via ureteral catheter or nephrostomy tube with total instillation volume based on individualized volumetric measurements using pyelography with the intent to fill the renal pelvis. Patients were treated with 6 instillations once a week. Patients who maintained a complete response (CR) after the initial treatment period were allowed to proceed to the follow-up period. During the initial treatment period, 71 patients were treated with JELMYTO, of whom 41 were subsequently continued in the follow-up period. During the follow-up period, 29 patients received at least one dose of maintenance therapy.The baseline demographic and disease characteristics for the trial population were: median age 71 years (range: 42-87 years); 68% male; 87% White; 90% Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status (ECOG PS) 0 or 1 and 10% ECOG PS 2. The median number of papillary lesions subsequent to debulking and/or biopsy and prior to treatment was 1 lesion (range: 1, 5), the median diameter of the largest lesion was 8.0 mm (range: 5.0, 15.0), and the median total visible tumor burden was 10.0 mm (range: 5.0, 25.0). Twenty-six (37%) patients underwent tumor debulking during the six weeks preceding enrollment. Of 71 enrolled patients, 48% had tumors located in regions not amenable to endoscopic resection. General anesthesia was used in 37% of patients for at least one instillation during the treatment period and for 61% of patients for at least one instillation during the follow-up period. The major efficacy outcome measures were CR and durability of CR at 12 months after determination of CR based on ureteroscopic and local pathology assessment. CR was defined as complete absence of tumor lesions at 3 months after initiation of JELMYTO by urine cytology and ureteroscopy. Biopsy was performed if warranted. Durability of response in patients with a CR was evaluated at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months following the initial assessment. Assessment of durability of CR subsequent to these evaluations was performed per local standards of care.Forty-one patients achieved CR in the study. At the 12-month time point for assessment of durability, 19 remained in CR, 7 had experienced recurrence of disease, and 9 patients continued to be followed for the 12-month duration of response. Efficacy results are provided in Table 3.Table 3: Efficacy Results for OLYMPUSEfficacy ParameterJELMYTON=71NR = not reached+ denotes ongoing response.

Instructions For Administration (Ifa)Jelmyto™ (Jel-Mye-Toe)(Mitomycin) For Pyelocalyceal Solutionfor Pyelocalyceal Instillation Only
- Read and follow this Instructions for Administration prior to each JELMYTO instillation.Purpose of this Instructions for AdministrationThis Instructions for Administration contains information on how to instill JELMYTO using the reconstituted JELMYTO vial which you received from the pharmacy and the devices listed under Supplies Needed, obtained by your facility.Intended Use of JELMYTOJELMYTO (mitomycin) for pyelocalyceal solution is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with low-grade Upper Tract Urothelial Cancer (LG-UTUC).Important Information You Need to Know Before Instilling JELMYTOJELMYTO must be reconstituted by a healthcare professional prior to instillation. Reconstituted JELMYTO will appear as a semisolid gel. Once chilled, JELMYTO will convert to a viscous liquid for instillation.Once instilled into the patient's pyelocalyceal system, JELMYTO will fill and conform to the cavity and become a gel, thereby exposing the tissue to mitomycin over a prolonged period of time.JELMYTO is viscous, even when it is a liquid in a chilled state. Therefore, you will need a Uroject12 Syringe Lever to instill JELMYTO into the patient. You cannot instill JELMYTO without the Uroject12 device. Reconstituted JELMYTO should be instilled as soon as possible after reconstitution. If immediate instillation is not possible, store reconstituted JELMYTO at 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F) for up to 8 hours. Protect from light.When ready to instill, chill JELMYTO to 27° F to 41°F (-3°C to 5°C) for at least 10 minutes, but no longer than one hour, to revert it to a liquid form. See the Steps A through E for complete administration instructions. JELMYTO is a cytotoxic anti-cancer drug. Procedures for Proper Handling and Disposal of anti-cancer drugs should be followed.Supplies NeededOne vial of reconstituted JELMYTO(prepared and provided by the pharmacy)JELMYTO vialAncillary Supplies(to be provided by your facility):Do not substitute any of these components.

Please follow the sterilization or disinfection instructions detailed in the Uroject12 Syringe Lever Instructions for Use.An ice bath to chill the vial of JELMYTO prior to instillation.TEVADAPTOR® Syringe Adaptor HFCOP MEDALLION® 20 mL Luer Lock syringeUreteral Catheter with molded Luer lock portUroject12 Syringe LeverIce BathInstillation InstructionsA.Measure the Kidney VolumeThe Instillation Volume will be equal to the patient's kidney volume. If the kidney volume is already known, proceed to Section B.If the kidney volume is NOT known, or needs to be reassessed, use the following steps:Perform a retrograde pyelogram using diluted contrast (50%) so that the entire renal pelvis and calyces are observed and contrast starts to flow below the ureteropelvic junction (UPJ).Record the volume of contrast injected at this point.Allow the contrast to drain from the kidney. This may take about five minutes.Note: Do not withdraw contrast back into the syringe.Repeat Steps 1 through 3 two more times, for a total of three measurements to improve accuracy.Average the three volume measurements and round to the nearest whole number. This is the patient's kidney volume.B.Select the Instillation VolumeSelect the kidney volume OR 15 mL, whichever is lower, as the Instillation Volume.Note: Maximum Instillation Volume is 15 mL. Record this volume for future instillations.C.Chill the JELMYTOPlace the JELMYTO vial in the ice bath for at least 10 minutes, but no longer than one hour.After at least 10 minutes, advance the ureteral catheter over the guidewire towards the target anatomy in the pyelocalyceal system. D.Prepare the Administration SyringeOnce the vial is removed from the ice bath, you have 4 minutes to draw JELMYTO into the administration syringe before it solidifies.After 4 minutes, recap and place the components back in the ice bath for no more than 15 minutes to liquify the JELMYTO.Remove the JELMYTO vial from the ice bath and dry it off.Swirl the vial upright to ensure that JELMYTO is uniformly mixed.Connect the syringe adaptor to the 20 mL Luer Lock syringe. This will be the administration syringe.Slowly withdraw the calculated Instillation Volume of JELMYTO into the administration syringe.Press the "Clutch" button on the Uroject12 and pull the knob out.Insert the administration syringe into the Uroject12 Syringe Lever and rotate it clockwise until it locks in place.While pressing the "Clutch" button, advance the lever to just above the administration syringe's plunger.Immediately proceed with the instillation steps in Section E to avoid JELMYTO solidification.E.Instill JELMYTORemove the syringe adaptor from the administration syringe. Note: If JELMYTO gets on to the syringe tip or the catheter's Luer Lock port, wipe it off immediately with sterile gauze so it does not solidify and prevent a secure connection. (Refer to Frequently Asked Questions below for further details.)Connect the administration syringe to the ureteral catheter's Luer Lock port, by rotating the syringe only.Using fluoroscopy, ensure the ureteral catheter is in the desired anatomical position.Gradually instill the JELMYTO into the patient by turning the knob at a rate of 1-2 seconds per stroke. The entire syringe must be emptied within one minute.Remove the ureteral catheter from the urinary tract.Remove the administration syringe from the Uroject12 by rotating the syringe barrel counter-clockwise.Discard the administration ancillaries according to your facility's disposal procedures.Send the Uroject12 to be reprocessed according to your facility's procedures and the Uroject12 Syringe Lever Instructions for Use.Frequently Asked QuestionsHow do I connect the syringe adaptor?Screw the Luer Lock end of the syringe adaptor onto the syringe hub until it is finger tight.How do I connect the syringe adaptor to the vial adaptor?Place the syringe adaptor over the vial adaptor and align the tabs; then press down firmly. You will hear a snap which confirms successful attachment.How do I disconnect the syringe adaptor from the vial adaptor?Pinch the tabs on the syringe adaptor to separate it from the vial adaptor.I am having a hard time working with reconstituted JELMYTO. It seems to be solidifying.If you are having difficulty pushing or withdrawing JELMYTO, recap and place the components back into the ice bath until JELMYTO liquifies.What should I do if there is JELMYTO spillage from the syringe tip?You will need to clean JELMYTO off the syringe tip and the Luer Lock port of the catheter to ensure the two components can connect securely.To clean the syringe tip, fold a sterile gauze pad in half twice, and push it into the inside of the Luer Lock port to wipe any JELMYTO off the threads.To clean the Luer Lock port on the catheter, use a sterile gauze pad to wipe off any JELMYTO.Verify that the connectors are clean to ensure a secure connection between the syringe and the catheter.This "Instructions for Administration" has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.Distributed by:UroGen Pharma, Inc.Princeton, NJ 08540www.JELMYTO.comTEVADAPTOR® is a registered trademark of Teva Medical Ltd.MEDALLION® is a registered trademark of Merit Medical Systems, Inc.JEL-IFU-001
