BRIEF TITLE: UGN-102 With or Without TURBT in Patients With Low Grade Intermediate Risk Non-Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer (LG IR NMIBC)

Brief Summary

This is a global, randomized, controlled, open-label Phase 3 study designed to assess the long-term efficacy and safety of UGN-102 (mitomycin) for intravesical solution with or without (±) transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBT) versus TURBT alone for the treatment of patients with low grade intermediate risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (LG IR NMIBC).

Detailed Description

Eligible patients will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to UGN-102 ± TURBT or TURBT alone.
Randomization will be stratified by the presence of a previous LG NMIBC episode within 1 year
of the current diagnosis (yes or no). Starting at Day 1, patients randomized to the UGN-102 ±
TURBT group will receive 6 once-weekly intravesical instillations of UGN-102 and patients
randomized to the TURBT alone group will undergo TURBT.

Patients in both treatment groups will return to the clinic at approximately 3 months after
the initiation of treatment (7 weeks ± 1 week after the last weekly instillation for the
UGN-102 ± TURBT group and 12 weeks ± 1 week after TURBT for the TURBT alone group) to
determine response to treatment. Patients determined to have a complete response (CR) will
receive no further treatment and will enter the follow-up period of the study. Patients
determined to have a non-complete response (NCR) will undergo TURBT of any remaining lesions
and will then enter the follow-up period of the study.

During the follow-up period, patients will return to the clinic every 3 months to determine
durability of response. Patients will remain on study until completion of all follow-up
visits (approximately 24 months after the initiation of treatment) or until recurrence or
death is documented, whichever occurs first. Patients determined to have a protocol-defined
recurrence at any follow-up or unscheduled visit will be considered to have completed the
study and released to the care of their treating physician.

The study is event-driven and patients may be followed beyond 24 months or additional
patients may be enrolled to achieve the target number of events required for the study.

5. Has adequate organ and bone marrow function as determined by the following routine
laboratory tests:

10. Has an underlying substance abuse or psychiatric disorder such that, in the opinion of
the investigator, the patient would be unable to comply with the protocol.

11. History of prior treatment with an intravesical chemotherapeutic agent except for a
single dose of chemotherapy immediately post any previous TURBT.

12. Has previously participated in a study in which they received UGN-102.
