Study of Durvalumab Given With Chemotherapy, Durvalumab in Combination With Tremelimumab Given With Chemotherapy, or Chemotherapy in Patients With Unresectable Urothelial Cancer

Trial Status: Active

This is a randomized, open-label, controlled, multi-center, global Phase III study to determine the efficacy and safety of combining durvalumab ± tremelimumab with standard of care (SoC) chemotherapy (cisplatin + gemcitabine or carboplatin + gemcitabine doublet) followed by durvalumab monotherapy versus SoC alone as first-line chemotherapy in patients with histologically or cytologically documented, unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic transitional cell carcinoma of the urothelium (including renal pelvis, ureters, urinary bladder, and urethra).

Inclusion Criteria

  • Patients with histologically or cytologically documented, unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic transitional cell carcinoma (transitional cell and mixed transitional/non-transitional cell histologies) of the urothelium (including renal pelvis, ureters, urinary bladder, and urethra)
  • Patients who have not been previously treated with first-line chemotherapy. Patients who have received prior definitive chemoradiation, adjuvant or neoadjuvant treatment for locally advanced disease are eligible provided that progression to locally advanced or metastatic disease has occurred >12 months from the last therapy [for chemoradiation and adjuvant treatment] or >12 months from the last surgery [for neoadjuvant treatment].
  • At least 1 lesion, not previously irradiated, that qualifies as a RECIST 1.1 target lesion at baseline.
  • World Health Organization (WHO)/Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) of 0 or 1 at enrolment
  • Adequate organ and marrow function as defined in the protocol
  • Life expectancy ≥12 weeks in the opinion of the investigator
  • Evidence of post-menopausal status, or negative urinary or serum pregnancy test for female pre-menopausal patients.

Exclusion Criteria

  • Prior exposure to immune-mediated therapy (with exclusion of Bacillus Calmette Guerin), including but not limited to, other anti-CTLA-4, anti-PD-1, anti-PD L1, or anti-PD-L2 antibodies, except therapeutic anticancer vaccines, which are permitted. Prior local intervesical chemotherapy or immunotherapy is allowed if completed at least 28 days prior to the initiation of study treatment.
  • No severe concomitant condition that requires immunosuppression medication
  • Untreated central nervous system (CNS) metastases and/or carcinomatous meningitis
  • Patients who may be eligible for or are being considered for radical resection during the course of the study.
  • Any medical contraindications to platinum (cisplatin or carboplatin) based doublet chemotherapy and/or known allergy or hypersensitivity to any of the study drugs or any of the study drug excipients
