  • A Study of Anti-Cancer Drug "BAY 1895344" with Usual Chemotherapy Treatment in Adults

    “Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial identifies the best dose, possible benefits and/or side effects of BAY 1895344 in combination with chemotherapy in treating patients with solid tumors or urothelial cancer that has spread to other places in the body (advanced). BAY 1895344 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Cisplatin and gemcitabine are chemotherapy drugs that stop the growth of tumor cells by killing the cells. Combining BAY 1895344 with chemotherapy treatment (cisplatin, or cisplatin and gemcitabine) may be effective for the treatment of advanced solid tumors, including urothelial cancer.

  • A Study of Enfortumab Vedotin for Treatment of Bladder Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study will test an experimental drug (enfortumab vedotin) alone and with different combinations of anticancer therapies. Pembrolizumab is an immune checkpoint inhibitor (CPI) that is used to treat patients with cancer of the urinary system (urothelial cancer). This type of cancer includes cancer of the bladder, renal pelvis, ureter or urethra. Some parts of the study will look at locally advanced or metastatic urothelial cancer (la/mUC), which means the cancer has spread to nearby tissues or to other areas of the body. Other parts of the study will look at muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC), which is cancer at an earlier stage that has spread into the muscle wall of the bladder. This study will look at the side effects of enfortumab vedotin alone and with other anticancer therapies. A side effect is a response to a drug that is not part of the treatment effect. This study will also test if the cancer shrinks with the different treatment combinations.

  • A Study of Experimental Atezolizumab With or Without Eribulin Mesylate in Treating Urothelial Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies the side effects of atezolizumab with or without eribulin mesylate and how well they work in treating patients with urothelial cancer that has come back (recurrent), spread to nearby tissues and lymph nodes (locally advanced), or other places in the body (metastatic). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Chemotherapy drugs, such as eribulin mesylate, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving atezolizumab and eribulin mesylate may work better at treating urothelial cancer compared to atezolizumab alone.

  • A Study of Experimental Gemcitabine Hydrochloride and Cisplatin For Invasive Bladder Urothelial Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies how well gemcitabine hydrochloride and cisplatin work in treating participants with invasive bladder urothelial cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine hydrochloride and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading.

  • A Study of Experimental Medicine Rogaratinib (BAY1163877) vs Chemotherapy For Urothelial Carcinoma (cancer of the urinary tract)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a randomized, open-label, multicenter Phase 2/3 study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of rogaratinib (BAY 1163877) compared to chemotherapy in patients with FGFR-positive locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma who have received prior platinum-containing chemotherapy. The primary objective is to demonstrate the superiority of rogaratinib over chemotherapy in terms of objective response rate (before: overall survivial) of urothelial carcinoma patients with FGFR positive tumors. At randomization, patients will have locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma and have received at least one prior platinum-containing chemotherapy regimen. Only patients with FGFR1 or 3 positive tumors can be randomized into the study. Archival tumor tissue is adequate for testing of FGFR1 and 3 mRNA expressions, which will be determined centrally using an RNA in situ hybridization (RNA-ISH) test. Approximately 42 % of UC patients with locally advanced or metastatic UC are identified as FGFR-positive by the RNA-ISH cut-off applied.

  • A Study of Selinexor and Pembrolizumab for the Treatment of Bladder Cancer

    “Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase Ib/II trial finds the best dose of selinexor and its effect with pembrolizumab in treating patients with urothelial carcinoma that are not eligible to receive the chemotherapy drug cisplatin, or have been given cisplatin and the cancer has gotten worse. Patients must also have urothelial carcinoma that has spread locally, near where it started (locally advanced), or has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic). Selinexor may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking a protein, called XPO1, that is needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving selinexor and pembrolizumab may kill more tumor cells.

  • A Study of the Experimental Combination of Chemoradiotherapy and Atezolizumab For Localized Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase III trial studies how well chemotherapy and radiation therapy work with or without atezolizumab in treating patients with localized muscle invasive bladder cancer. Radiation therapy uses high energy rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Chemotherapy drugs, such as gemcitabine, cisplatin, fluorouracil and mitomycin-C, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving atezolizumab with radiation therapy and chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with localized muscle invasive bladder cancer compared to radiation therapy and chemotherapy without atezolizumab.

  • Adding Anti-Cancer Drug Pembrolizumab to the Usual Chemotherapy for Bladder Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies the effect of adding pembrolizumab to gemcitabine in treating patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer whose cancer does not respond to Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) treatment. Chemotherapy drugs, such as gemcitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the patient's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Adding pembrolizumab to gemcitabine may delay the return of BCG-unresponsive bladder cancer for longer period compared to gemcitabine alone.

  • Experimental Treatment with Atezolizumab in Localized Bladder Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a single arm, open label Phase II study of MPDL3280A, an anti-PD-L1 antibody administered as neoadjuvant therapy to subjects with either BCG-refractory non-muscle invasive transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder, or muscle-invasive TCC appropriate for cystectomy and refusing or ineligible for neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Enrolled patients will be assigned sequentially to dose levels in cohorts of 6 patients per dose level. The starting dose level is 1200mg x 1 dose and will be escalated in subsequent cohorts to 1200mg q 3 weeks x 2 doses, and finally 1200mg q 3 weeks x 3 doses to determine the impact of increasing number of treatments on the modulated immune response with the tumor tissue. Subjects with adverse pathology (pT3/pT4 or N+) will be offered the option of adjuvant MPDL3280A for up to 16 cumulative cycles of treatment. After all neoadjuvant study therapy is administered, each subject will undergo cystectomy to evaluate pathologic response to treatment and for immunologic characterization in the resected tissue. Serum and urine will be obtained as well to characterize circulating immune responses. After the multi-dose portion of the study has completed accrual two expansion cohorts of up to 15 patients each with Non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) or Non-metastatic muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) will be accrued at the highest dose level for further characterization of safety, efficacy, and immunologic analysis. Patients with pT3, pT4, or N+ disease at the time of cystectomy and no metastatic disease will be offered the option of adjuvant MPDL3280A for up to a total of 16 cumulative cycles. All subjects will be followed clinically for up to 2 years to assess for disease recurrence.
