Indications and Usage

Jelmyto® (mitomycin) for pyelocalyceal solution is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with low-grade Upper Tract Urothelial Cancer (LG-UTUC).

Important Safety Information


Jelmyto is contraindicated in patients with perforation of the bladder or upper urinary tract.

Ureteric Obstruction

Ureteric obstruction, including ureteral stenosis and hydronephrosis, occurred in patients receiving Jelmyto. 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.

Bone Marrow Suppression

The use of Jelmyto can result in bone marrow suppression, particularly thrombocytopenia and neutropenia. 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.

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.

Common Adverse Reactions

The most common adverse reactions in ≥ 20% of patients treated with Jelmyto were ureteric obstruction, flank pain, urinary tract infection, hematuria, abdominal pain, fatigue, renal dysfunction, nausea, dysuria, and vomiting.

Additional Adverse Reactions Information

Selected clinically relevant adverse reactions in < 10% and ≥ 2% of patients who received Jelmyto include urinary tract inflammation, bladder spasm, urosepsis, hypersensitivity, and instillation site pain.

Use in Specific Populations

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.

Preparation and Administration Information

Jelmyto is for pyelocalyceal use only and not for intravenous use, topical use, or oral administration. Jelmyto must be prepared and administered by a healthcare provider.
