BCANTT 2020: Phase 3 Trial of Nadofaragene Firadenovec for High-Risk, BCG Unresponsive, Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer

(UroToday.com) Colin Dinney, MD, of the MD Anderson Cancer Center, discussed nadofaragene firadenovec. He reported the initial results of 30% complete response (CR) which prompted a phase III trial for bacillus calmette-Guerin (BCG) unresponsive high-risk non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). A total of 157 patients were evaluated for safety with 151 patients for efficacy. At 3mo 53% had CR and 24% had CR at 12 mo. Patients with carcinoma in situ (CIS) versus no CIS CR at 12mo was 46% and 60%, respectively. A total of 8 (5%) patients progressed to ‚Č•T2 disease, however, they observed 65% cystectomy free survival at 2 years. Toxicity was minimal and overall administration well tolerated.
