Infiltrating Bladder Mixed Carcinoma clinical trials at UC Health
1 research study open to eligible people
Testing the Addition of an Anti-cancer Drug, Pembrolizumab, to the Usual Intravesical Chemotherapy Treatment (Gemcitabine) for the Treatment of BCG-Unresponsive Non-muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This phase II trial studies how well gemcitabine together with pembrolizumab works in treating patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer who are unresponsive to the BCG vaccine. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Adding pembrolizumab to gemcitabine may delay the return of bladder cancer for longer than gemcitabine alone.
