The 2016/17 FDA approvals of five immune checkpoint inhibitors for platinum-treated patients have significantly altered the treatment landscape for advanced bladder cancer, which has historically been dominated by chemotherapies. Keytruda (Merck) and Tecentriq (Roche / Genentech) have since been approved for previously untreated patients, with Keytruda gaining quick FDA approval in the non-muscle-invasive, BCG-unresponsive population as immune checkpoint inhibitors have spread across different stages of disease. Biomarker-driven treatments are becoming increasingly attractive, highlighted by Balversa’s FDA approval in April 2019. Furthermore, the entrance of Padcev in the third-line setting in the United States provides patients with an extra treatment option for metastatic disease. Given the intense Phase II/III pipeline activity, we anticipate the approval of several new therapies for both muscle-invasive and non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer within the forecast period.
