The purpose of this study is to determine if TAR-200, an investigational drug-delivery system, is safe and tolerable in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) who are unfit for radical cystectomy (RC) during an 84-day induction period comprised of four consecutive 21-day dosing cycles.
