"We look forward to presenting data from the OLYMPUS trial of our lead product candidate, UGN-101, for the treatment of patients with low-grade UTUC," said Ron Bentsur, Chief Executive Officer of UroGen.

"With UGN-101, we hope to change the treatment paradigm for low-grade UTUC and potentially reduce the high recurrence rate characteristic of UTUC, while eliminating the need for surgery and the risks associated with surgery. Our goal is for UGN-101 to become the first-ever approved treatment for low-grade UTUC."
The OLYMPUS trial continues to enroll patients, and top-line results are expected in the third quarter of 2018.
