  • An Experimental Treatment With Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients With Advanced Bladder Cancer

    “This study will use MK-3475 to stimulate your immune system to treat muscle-invasive bladder cancer.”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This randomized phase III trial studies how well pembrolizumab works in treating patients with bladder cancer that has spread into the deep muscle of the bladder wall (muscle-invasive) or urothelial cancer that has spread from where it started to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced). Monoclonal antibodies recognizing and blocking checkpoint molecules can enhance the patient's immune response and therefore help fight cancer. Pembrolizumab is one of the monoclonal antibodies that block the PD-1 axis and can interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow.
