Bladder Urothelial cancer (UC) accounts for about 90% of all bladder or urinary tract cancers. UC becomes harder to treat as it advances, resulting in a 5-year survival rate of only 5% for metastatic stage. Given the poor prognosis for these advanced patients, there was a high need for additional treatment options and until recently, only a few therapeutic options were available. The treatment landscape has dramatically changed in recent years with the introduction of immune checkpoint inhibitors and the development of novel targeted agents.
Checkpoint inhibitor drugs release a natural brake on the immune system. This allows the immune cells to recognize and attack tumors. The drugs work by blocking the interaction of PD-1 on the surface of immune cells with PD-L1, a protein on the surface of cancer cells that keeps the immune system from attacking them.
- atezolizumab (Tecentriq®), avelumab (Bavencio®) and durvalumab (Imfinzi®) are drugs that block PD-L1 to boost the immune system's response against the cancer cells.
- nivolumab (Opdivo®) and pembrolizumab (Keytruda®) block PD-1.
