Podcast: Bridging Chasms in Bladder Cancer Care: An Expert Case-based Review of Treatment Selection and Sequencing in an Era of Therapeutic Novelty


Petros Grivas, MD, PhD

Sam S. Chang MD, MBA

Scott T. Tagawa, MD, MS, FACP

Statement of Need

This educational session will comprehensively evaluate the current state of the bladder cancer management paradigm and investigate the emergence of new data across the totality of the disease continuum, with a particular emphasis on evidence-based treatment sequencing and the role of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) in subsequent lines of therapy for advanced disease. To conclude the session, activity attendees will get to apply the therapeutic principles they’ve learned to real-world clinical scenarios which will focus on patient-centric treatment selection and sequencing, as well as recognition, mitigation, and management of treatment-related adverse events.

Learning Objectives

  • Examine recent evolutions in the bladder cancer management calculus across the totality of the disease
  • Appraise the expanding clinical trial evidentiary base for ADCs in metastatic disease, including regulatory updates, recent readouts, and current expert consensus guideline recommendations.
  • Discuss the unique clinical potential of ADCs in mUC, particularly in subsequent lines of therapy, and evaluate ongoing and prospective ADC clinical trials, both as monotherapy and as part of combinatorial regimens with ICIs.
  • Using real-world cases that incorporate the patient voice, design evidence-supported bladder cancer treatment plans, both in first-line and post-progression, by integrating guideline recommendations with patient-specific and disease-specific factors (i.e., performance status, renal function, PD-L1 expression, FGFR mutation, cytopathology, urinary markers, etc.).
  • Recognize, mitigate, and manage treatment-related adverse events in patients with advanced bladder cancer.

Supported by

Supported through an independent educational grant from Gilead.

Target Audience

Physicians specializing in genitourinary oncology and urologic oncology as well as members of the interprofessional health care team active in treating patients with bladder cancer
