New Prognostic Model in Patients with Advanced Urothelial Carcinoma Treated with Second-Line Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors - Beyond the Abstract

May 31, 2023

Bellmunt Risk Score, based on Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS), hemoglobin levels and presence of liver metastases, is the most established prognostic algorithm for patients with advanced urothelial cancer (aUC) progressing after platinum-based chemotherapy. Existing algorithms may not be sufficient following the introduction of immunotherapy. Our aim was to develop an improved prognostic model in patients receiving second-line atezolizumab for aUC.
