Phase 2 Durvalumab (Medi4736) for Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) Refactory Urothelial Carcinoma in Situ of the Bladder

NCT02901548

Description:

The purpose of this study is to test if an experimental drug called Durvalumab (Medi4736) given by intravenous (IV) infusion is effective in treating carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the bladder that no longer responds to Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) and to collect information on the safety of these drugs and whether they cause any side effects.

Eligibility Criteria

        Inclusion Criteria:

          -  Must have pathologically confirmed urothelial carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the bladder
             that meet one of the following criteria: 1. Persistence of high-grade CIS at 6 months
             following an adequate course of BCG; OR - 2. Stage/grade progression at 3 months after
             induction BCG; OR - 3. Recurrence of high-grade CIS after achieving a disease-free
             state (i.e., CR) following induction of an adequate course of BCG that occurs < 9
             months after the last exposure to BCG; OR - 4. Persistent CIS noted on the bladder
             biopsies within 3 months of completing at least 2 induction BCG (minimum of five
             weekly instillations). An adequate course of BCG should be defined as at least one
             course of induction (minimum of five weekly instillations) and one maintenance (two of
             three instillations) in a 6 months period, with an exception for any patient with
             grade/stage progression after induction BCG (minimum of five weekly instillations).

             childbearing potential who are sexually active with a nonsterilized male partner must
             use a highly effective method of contraception from the time of screening, and must
             agree to continue using such precautions for 90 days after the final dose of
             Durvalumab. They must also refrain from egg cell donation for 90 days after the final
             dose of Durvalumab.

          -  Nonsterilized males who are sexually active with a female partner of childbearing
             potential must use a highly effective method of contraception and refrain from sperm
             donation from Day 1 through 90 days after receipt of the final dose of Durvalumab.

             or lentigo maligna without evidence of disease; Adequately treated carcinoma in situ
             without evidence of disease e.g., cervical cancer in situ.

          -  Receipt of the last dose of anti-cancer therapy (chemotherapy, immunotherapy,
             endocrine therapy, tyrosine kinase inhibitor, biologic therapy, tumor embolization,
             monoclonal antibodies, other investigational agent) ≤ 30 days prior to the first dose

             illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements or
             compromise the ability of the participant to give written informed consent.

          -  Known history of previous clinical diagnosis of tuberculosis.

          -  History of leptomeningeal carcinomatosis.

          -  Receipt of live attenuated vaccination within 30 days prior to study entry or within

Primary Outcome Measures

Measure:Complete Response Rate at 6 Months
Time Frame:6 Months
Safety Issue:
Description:Complete Response Rate at month six based on the week 26 mapping biopsy in BCG refractory CIS urothelial bladder cancer. The absence of CIS of bladder on the mapping biopsies after pathological review would be considered complete response to treatment.

Secondary Outcome Measures

Measure:Complete Response Rate at 24 Months
Time Frame:24 Months
Safety Issue:
Description:Complete Response Rate at month 24 based on the week 104 mapping biopsy in BCG refractory CIS urothelial bladder cancer. The absence of CIS of bladder on the mapping biopsies after pathological review would be considered complete response to treatment.
