ASCO 2016 | BISCAY trial for bladder cancer – trial design and its potential impact on clinical practice
Thomas Powles, MD, PhD from Barts Cancer Institute, London, UK discusses the BISCAY clinical trial in bladder cancer (NCT02546661). The trial looks at a group of patients with bladder cancer and next-generation sequencing (NGS) was performed on their tumor samples looking for specific mutations. The treatment will then be based on the patients’ mutations; for example if patient have an FGFR3 mutations, they will receive an FGFR3 inhibitior plus immunotherapy (durvalumab). Prof. Powles anticipates that high response rates will be seen in patients with specific mutations, who are receiving targeted therapy. Recorded at the American Society of Oncology (ASCO) 2016 Annual Meeting held in Chicago, IL.
