Topics to Be Discussed

Module 1: Current and Emerging Strategies in the Management of Urothelial Bladder Carcinoma (UBC)

  • FDA approval and integration into current clinical practice of pembrolizumab for patients with BCG-unresponsive, high-risk non-muscle-invasive UBC who are ineligible for or elected not to undergo cystectomy
  • Available data and ongoing trials with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies alone or in combination with other agents for localized UBC (eg, KEYNOTE-676, ALBAN, POTOMAC, NIAGARA)
  • Key efficacy and safety results from the Phase III JAVELIN Bladder 100 trial evaluating first-line maintenance therapy with avelumab; recent FDA approval and current clinical role
  • Design, eligibility criteria and efficacy and safety findings from the Phase III IMvigor130 trial assessing atezolizumab in combination with chemotherapy for previously untreated locally advanced or metastatic UBC
  • Ongoing Phase III trials (eg, CheckMate 901, NILE) evaluating anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies in combination with other systemic therapies
  • FDA approval of enfortumab vedotin for patients with locally advanced or metastatic UBC; optimal integration into current management algorithms
  • Published efficacy findings with and FDA breakthrough therapy designation for enfortumab vedotin in combination with pembrolizumab for patients with locally advanced or metastatic UBC
  • Mechanism of action of erdafitinib and efficacy and safety data supporting the recent FDA approval of this agent for patients with locally advanced or metastatic UBC with susceptible FGFR3 or FGFR2 genetic alterations who have experienced disease progression on or after chemotherapy
  • Published research and ongoing evaluation of other promising agents and strategies in UBC (eg, sacituzumab govitecan, cabozantinib, novel FGFR inhibitors)

Module 2: Optimizing Treatment Approaches for Patients with Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC)

  • Clinical and biologic factors in the selection of first-line therapy for patients with newly diagnosed metastatic RCC
  • Major efficacy and safety findings from the pivotal Phase III CheckMate 214 trial evaluating nivolumab/ipilimumab versus sunitinib for treatment-naïve advanced RCC
  • Design, eligibility criteria and key efficacy and safety data from the Phase III KEYNOTE-426 and JAVELIN Renal 101 trials assessing pembrolizumab/axitinib and avelumab/axitinib, respectively, in the front-line setting
  • Emerging results from the Phase III CheckMate 9ER trial evaluating nivolumab in combination with cabozantinib for previously untreated advanced RCC; potential role in clinical practice
  • Biologic rationale and research findings leading to the FDA breakthrough therapy designation for pembrolizumab/lenvatinib
  • Other ongoing Phase III studies (CLEAR, PDIGREE, COSMIC-313) investigating first-line immunotherapy/tyrosine kinase inhibitor combinations for advanced RCC
  • Clinical trial findings with cabozantinib and optimal use for patients with relapsed/refractory RCC; available data with and ongoing evaluation of cabozantinib in combination with atezolizumab after disease progression on immune checkpoint inhibitor-based therapy
  • Rational sequencing of available therapies for metastatic RCC progressing on prior therapies
  • Published research data with lenvatinib/everolimus and optimal integration into RCC management algorithms
  • Available clinical trial data and ongoing research with other novel agents and strategies for treatment-naïve and relapsed/refractory metastatic RCC

Target Audience
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of medical and radiation oncologists, urologists and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of bladder cancer and renal cell carcinoma.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to

  • Consider emerging research and available guidelines to individualize first-and later-line therapy for patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
  • Recall the underlying research database supporting the FDA approval of anti-PD-1/anti-CTLA-4 combination therapy as first-line treatment for metastatic RCC (mRCC), and develop strategies to appropriately integrate this approach into patient care.
  • Appraise available clinical trial data evaluating recently FDA-approved anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibody/multikinase inhibitor combinations for previously untreated mRCC, and counsel patients about the risks and benefits of these novel regimens.
  • Develop a rational therapeutic approach to the sequencing of systemic therapies for patients with advanced RCC whose disease progresses on first-line treatment, incorporating tyrosine kinase inhibitors, mTOR inhibitors and immunotherapeutic agents.
  • Consider the recent FDA approval of pembrolizumab for high-risk, non-muscle-invasive urothelial bladder carcinoma (UBC) that is unresponsive to BCG, and determine how pembrolizumab can be appropriately integrated into patient care.
  • Evaluate available data and ongoing trials investigating the use of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies as neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy for muscle-invasive bladder cancer, and refer eligible patients for appropriate study participation.
  • Review available clinical trial data leading to the recent FDA approval of the anti-PD-L1 antibody avelumab as maintenance therapy after first-line chemotherapy for patients with previously untreated metastatic UBC, and optimally incorporate this novel strategy into management algorithms.
  • Assess available and emerging clinical trial data evaluating anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies in combination with chemotherapy for patients with previously untreated metastatic UBC, and consider the potential role of this approach in routine practice.
  • Recognize the FDA approval of erdafitinib for advanced UBC with susceptible FGFR3 or FGFR2 genetic alterations in patients whose disease has progressed during or after at least 1 line of platinum-containing chemotherapy, and determine how this agent may be appropriately integrated into clinical practice.
  • Recall the mechanism of action and pivotal clinical trial findings with enfortumab vedotin for previously treated locally advanced or metastatic UBC, and identify patients for whom treatment with this novel compound would be appropriate.
  • Appraise available research data and ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel agents and strategies for patients with RCC and UBC, and counsel appropriately selected individuals about participation in active research protocols.
