Simon Crabb and Petros Grivas on the most interesting trials presented at ASCO GU 2022 in the field of urothelial carcinoma. They discuss emerging data in the neoadjuvant setting for cisplatin-ineligible patients, such as cohort H from the EV-103 trial, and the best sequencing strategy in upper-track disease setting. They also review the updates on metastatic disease highlighting the longer follow-up results from JAVELIN Bladder 100 and the interesting outcomes from the ATLANTIS trial. In the context of the BAYOU study, they talk about the importance of patient selection and the difficulty of writing the eligibility criteria for what platinum ineligibility really means. They also consider how the results from TROPHY-U-01 cohort 3 support further investigation and conclude that in this rapidly evolving setting, the future relies on combination therapy.
