How will immune checkpoint inhibitors transform the treatment of Bladder Cancer?

Significant progress has been made over the past decade in bladder cancer as a host of new targeted therapies have emerged from the development pipeline. Five PD-1/PD-L1 immune checkpoint inhibitors have been approved but how are they set to impact treatment pathways? Which checkpoint inhibitor do the key opinion leaders (KOLs) think will dominate the market and how can each one successfully differentiate itself in a fast evolving landscape? Targeted agents such as Eli Lilly’s Cyramza are also in the pipeline but what are the most important factors to ensure utilisation of these novel agents?

Learn how KOLs see the market evolving, and how they expect developers to differentiate their marketed and pipeline therapies in KOL Insight: Bladder Cancer. Twelve US and European KOLs provide their candid insights on eight marketed products and four Phase III pipeline programmes

Top Takeaways

What unmet needs exist in non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) and is the BCG vaccine addressing these needs? Will the conventional Bacillus Calmette–Guérin (BCG) vaccine retain its hold as standard of care in the high-risk NMIBC setting?
Which novel intravesical therapies are likely to treat NMIBC in the future and will they be embraced? Instiladrin (FKD Therapies/Merck & Co.), Vicinium (Eleven Biotherapeutics) and ALT-803 (Altor BioScience) are all in the Phase III pipeline but how are they perceived by KOLs?
Five PD-1/PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitors have been approved for advanced bladder cancer but which ones are KOLs most enthusiastic about? Find out how the immune checkpoint inhibitors are expected to impact bladder cancer and how these agents are perceived by regulatory authorities?
How do KOLs believe the immune checkpoint inhibitors can successfully differentiate themselves? How are KOLs weighing up each checkpoint inhibitor in terms of efficacy, safety, administration and access? Find out which checkpoint inhibitor has the most opportunity in the adjuvant setting or as a maintenance approach.
Can targeted agents such as Eli Lilly’s Cyramza forge a niche in the treatment algorithm? Based on results of the RANGE study, how do KOLs view Cyramza (ramucirumab) as a potential treatment for bladder cancer? What will be critical for commercial success in this indication?
Which innovative mechanisms of action are KOLs most excited about? Angiogenesis inhibitors and fibroblast growth factor (FGF) receptor inhibitors are all in the early-stage pipeline but are there any novel mechanisms that stand out to KOLs?
How will future treatment pathways evolve for the treatment of bladder cancer? Find out if immune checkpoint inhibitors or combination therapies are expected to play an important role.


“A lot of patients will have a PD-1 inhibitor upfront. There may be a small group of patients with metastatic and more aggressive disease, who will be having [upfront] combinations of PD-1 and CTLA-4 inhibitors, or possibly IDO inhibitors.” EU Key Opinion Leader

“It has been a hugely exciting time in the last two years. Suddenly, in bladder cancer, things are taking off. It’s really quite exciting.” US Key Opinion Leader
