This is a randomized, open-label, multi-center study comparing the efficacy and safety of XRP9881 plus cisplatin to gemcitabine plus cisplatin in the first line treatment of locally advanced/metastatic urothelial tract or bladder cancer. The primary objective is to compare overall survival. Secondary objectives include comparisons of progression free survival, objective response rate, time to definitive deterioration of performance status, duration of response, time to definitive weight loss, and assessments of overall safety, and pharmacokinetics. Patients are treated until disease progression, death, or unacceptable toxicity and are followed-up until death or the end of the study whichever comes first.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival defined as the time interval from the date of randomization to the date of death due to any cause [ Time Frame: study period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Radiological tumor assessments (CT/MRI) [ Time Frame: at screening, every 8 weeks during treatment, at end of treatment, and in follow-up until documented disease progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Adverse Events, laboratory assessments, vital signs, Physical Examinations, and ECOG Performance Status [ Time Frame: at screening and every cycle ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
