Trying to Find the Correct Length of Treatment With Immune Checkpoint Therapy

Clinical Trial Title

A031901: Duration of Immune Checkpoint Therapy in Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma: A Randomized Phase 3 Non-Inferiority Trial (IMAGINE)

National Clinical Trial Number:

NCT04637594

Rush Cancer Center Clinical Trials Office

Clinical Trial Protocol Description:

This phase III trial compares survival in urothelial cancer patients who stop immune checkpoint inhibitor treatment after being treated for about a year to those patients who continue treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors.

Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as avelumab, durvalumab, pembrolizumab, atezolizumab, and nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

Stopping immune checkpoint inhibitors early may still make the tumor shrink and patients may have similar survival rates as the patients who continue treatment. Stopping treatment early may also lead to fewer treatment-related side effects, an improvement in mental health, and a lower cost burden to patients.

Clinical Trial Eligibility Criteria:

In order to participate you must meet the following criteria:

  • Have histologically or cytologically confirmed urothelial carcinoma (UC) with predominantly transitional-cell features.
  • Have received at least one cycle of current active treatment with standard of care (SOC) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved PD-1/L1 immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI)-containing therapy for locally advance or metastatic UC.
  • No history of allogeneic organ transplantation.
  • Be 18 years or older.

This is a partial list of inclusion and exclusion criteria.
