Topics to Be Discussed

  • Nonmetastatic Urothelial Bladder Cancer
  • Metastatic Disease

Target Audience
This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows, surgeons and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of urothelial bladder cancer.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to

  • Consider available data supporting the use of anti-PD-1 antibody therapy for high-risk, non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) that is unresponsive to BCG, and determine how this strategy can be appropriately integrated into current care.
  • Evaluate available findings from clinical trials establishing the benefit of adjuvant anti-PD-1 antibody therapy for patients with high-risk muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC), and consider the current role of this strategy.
  • Recognize how biological and patient-specific factors influence the selection and sequencing of treatment for metastatic urothelial bladder cancer (mUBC).
  • Review available evidence with immune checkpoint inhibitors as monotherapy or as maintenance after platinum-based chemotherapy for newly diagnosed mUBC, and determine the current utility of these agents in clinical practice.
  • Appreciate the biological rationale for and available research findings with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies combined with chemotherapy or antibody-drug conjugates as first-line treatment for mUBC, and assess the current and future role of these regimens in the care of patients.
  • Recall pivotal clinical trial findings leading to the FDA approval of novel compounds, such as antibody-drug conjugates and tyrosine kinase inhibitors, for previously treated locally advanced or metastatic UBC, and identify patients for whom therapy with these approaches would be appropriate.
  • Interrogate available clinical trial findings with HER2-directed therapies for advanced UBC, and evaluate the future utility of these agents for appropriately selected patients.
  • Implement a plan of care to recognize and manage side effects and toxicities associated with approved and emerging systemic therapies for mUBC.
  • Develop an understanding of the biological rationale for, available research findings with and ongoing studies evaluating promising investigational agents and strategies for patients with NMIBC, MIBC and mUBC.
