Bladder Cancer

MPDL3280A for Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Bladder Cancer
A Phase II, Multicenter, Single-Arm Study of MPDL3280A in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Bladder Cancer
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Recruiting Bladder Cancer Phase II NCT02108652
Summary

This phase II, single-arm study was designed to evaluate the effect of MPDL3280A treatment in patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial bladder ca ncer. Patients will be enrolled into 1 of 2 cohorts. Cohort 1 will consist of pa tients who are treatment-naïve and ineligible for platinum-containing therapy. C ohort 2 will contain patients who have progressed during or following a prior pl atinum-based chemotherapy regimen. Patients in both cohorts will be given a 1200 mg intravenous (IV) dose of MPDL3280A on Day 1 of 21-day cycles. Treatment may continue for up to 16 cycles or 12 months, whichever is first, in the absence of toxicity or disease progression. Patients will be followed for up for 2 years. Patients who complete the initial treatment stage of up to 16 cycles may be eli gible for MPDL3280A re-treatment upon subsequent disease progression during the follow-up period and without intervening systemic anti-cancer therapy.

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1
  • Life expectancy >/= 12 weeks
  • Measurable disease, as defined by RECIST v1.1

  • A hearing loss of 25 dB at two contiguous frequencies
  • Grade 2 or greater peripheral neuropathy
  • ECOG performance score of 2

Cohort 2-Specific Inclusion Criteria

Exclusions (conditions that would prevent participation in this study)
  • Any approved anti-cancer therapy within 3 weeks prior to initiation of study treatment
  • Treatment with any other investigational agent or participation in another clinical trial with therapeutic intent within 28 days prior to enrollment
  • Active or untreated central nervous system (CNS) metastases as determined by CT or MRI evaluation during screening and prior radiographic assessments
  • Leptomeningeal disease
  • Malignancies other than UBC within 5 years prior to Cycle 1, Day 1, with the exception of those with a negligible risk of metastasis or death treated with expected curative outcome or incidental prostate cancer
  • Pregnant and lactating women
  • History of autoimmune disease
  • History of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, organizing pneumonia, drug-induced pneumonitis, idiopathic pneumonitis, or evidence of active pneumonitis on screening chest CT scan

  • Positive test for HIV and/or active hepatitis B or hepatitis C or tuberculosis
  • Severe infections within 4 weeks prior to Cycle 1, Day 1
  • Significant cardiovascular disease
  • Major surgical procedure other than for diagnosis within 28 days prior to Cycle 1, Day 1
  • Prior allogeneic stem cell or solid organ transplant
  • Administration of a live, attenuated vaccine within 4 weeks before Cycle 1, Day 1
  • Any other diseases, metabolic dysfunction, physical examination finding, or clinical laboratory finding giving reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicates the use of an investigational drug or that may affect the interpretation of the results or render the patient at high risk from treatment complications
  • Prior treatment with CD137 agonists or immune checkpoint blockade therapies, including anti-CTLA-4, anti-PD-1, and anti-PD-L1 therapeutic antibodies
