Recent Findings on Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma Presented at the AUA’s 2019 Annual Meeting – Summary:

Phillip M. Pierorazio, MD, reviews data from one presentation and two moderated posters at the American Urological Association’s 2019 Annual Meeting related to upper tract urothelial cancer (UTUC). He discusses the promising efficacy of UGN-101 to treat low-grade UTUC as shown in the OLYMPUS trial, details data that supports the use of intravesical therapy to prevent recurrence of bladder cancer in patients with upper-tract disease, and argues that concordant or discordant pathology should have little bearing on treatment options for patients suspected of having high-grade UTUC.
