Ramucirumab or IMC-18F1 With Docetaxel or Docetaxel Alone Bladder,Urethra, Ureter, or Renal Pelvis Carcinoma
An Open-Label, Multicenter, Randomized Phase 2 Study Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of Docetaxel in Combination With Ramucirumab (IMC-1121B) Drug Product or IMC-18F1 or Without Investigational Therapy as Second-line Therapy in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Transitional Cell Carcinoma of the Bladder, Urethra, Ureter, or Renal Pelvis Following Disease Progression on First-line Platinum-based Therapy
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Carcinoma of Urinary Tract
Urethral Carcinoma
Carcinoma of Ureter
Carcinoma of Renal Pelvis
Phase II NCT01282463

This multicenter trial will enroll participants with metastatic transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder, urethra, ureter, or renal pelvis who have had disease progression on first-line platinum-based chemotherapy regimens. Participants will be enrolled into 1 of 3 treatment arms: docetaxel; docetaxel and ramucirumab; or docetaxel and IMC-18F1.
