Vinflunine (INN, trade name Javlor) is a novel fluorinated Vinca alkaloid[1] undergoing research for the treatment of bladder cancer. It was originally discovered by the team of the Professor Jean-Claude Jacquesy (UMR CNRS 6514 - Poitiers University),[2] developed by Laboratoires Pierre Fabre and was licensed to Bristol-Myers Squibb for development in certain countries, including the United States.

On November 23, 2007, Pierre Fabre and BMS announced that they are terminating their license agreement for the development of vinflunine.[3]
