A Study of MPDL3280A Compared With Chemotherapy in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Bladder Cancer

This study is currently recruiting participants. (see Contacts and Locations)

This is a Phase III, global, multicenter, open-label, two-arm, randomized, controlled study designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of MPDL3280A compared with chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial bladder cancer (UBC) who have progressed during or following a platinum-containing regimen. The anticipated time on study treatment is based on continued clinical benefit, i.e., until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. The target sample size is 767 patients.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm A: MPDL3280A Drug: MPDL3280A
MPDL3280A, 1200 mg by intravenous infusion on Day 1 of each 21-day cycle
Active Comparator: Arm B: Control Chemotherapy
Prior to randomization, the investigator will have the option of choosing one of three chemotherapy regimens (vinflunine, paclitaxel, or docetaxel) for each patient. The ratio of patients who are randomized to vinflunine versus patients who are randomized to a taxane (paclitaxel or docetaxel) will be approximately 1:1
Drug: Chemotherapy
vinflunine, paclitaxel, or docetaxel per the investigator's choice and administered according to local label
