Open Actively Recruiting

Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Multiple Immunotherapy-Based Treatments and Combinations in Patients With Urothelial Carcinoma (MORPHEUS-UC)

About

Brief Summary

A Phase Ib/II, open-label, multicenter, randomized, umbrella study in participants with locally advanced or metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma (UC) who have progressed during or following a platinum-containing regimen. The study is designed with the flexibility to open new treatment arms as new treatments become available, close existing treatment arms that demonstrate minimal clinical activity or unacceptable toxicity, or modify the participant population (e.g., with regard to prior anti-cancer treatment or biomarker status). The purpose of this study is to compare the effects, good or bad, of the atezolizumab combination versus standard treatment with atezolizumab on patients with bladder cancer, to find out which is better. We expect to enroll approximately 5 people at UCLA and 130-305 (stage 1) & 30-80 (stage 2) patients study wide.
