Brief Summary:
The purpose of study is to compare bladder intact-event free survival (BI-EFS) in participants receiving TAR-200 in combination with intravenous (IV) cetrelimab versus concurrent chemoradiotherapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Urinary Bladder Neoplasms Biological: Cetrelimab Drug: TAR-200 Drug: Cisplatin Drug: Gemcitabine Radiation: Conventional radiation therapy Radiation: Hypo-fractioned radiation therapy Phase 3

Detailed Description:
The TAR-200 is an investigational intravesical drug delivery system. Cetrelimab (JNJ-63723283) is a fully human immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) kappa monoclonal antibody (mAb) that binds programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1). Study consists of screening phase of 42 days, treatment phase and follow up phase. The total duration of study will be up to 8 years. Efficacy evaluation includes disease assessment (Cystoscopy/TURBT Biopsy/Pathology) and Patient Reported Outcomes (Quality of Life Assessments) and safety assessments includes vital sign measurements, 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG), physical examinations, clinical laboratory tests, cystoscopic examination, anti-drug antibody (ADA) assessments, concomitant treatments/procedures and adverse event monitoring.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time from Randomization to the First Bladder Intact Event-free Survival (BI-EFS) event [ Time Frame: Up to 8 years ]
    Time from randomization to the first BI-EFS event includes histologically proven presence of muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC), clinical evidence of nodal or metastatic disease (as assessed by RECIST 1.1 criteria), radical cystectomy (RC), or death due to any cause.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Metastasis-free survival (MFS) [ Time Frame: Up to 8 years ]
    MFS is measured from time from randomization to first radiologic (as assessed by RECIST 1.1 criteria) or histologic evidence of metastatic disease or death due to any cause.

  2. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to 8 years ]
    OS is defined as time from randomization to death.

  3. Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to 8 years ]
    ORR is defined as proportion of participants who have complete response (CR) (defined as Negative biopsy, and Computed tomography/Magnetic resonance imaging [CT/MRI] of chest, abdomen, and pelvis showing no evidence of local recurrence, progression, or metastatic disease) or partial response (PR): (defined as down staging: biopsy proven non-muscle invasive disease less than [<] T1 and CT/MRI of chest, abdomen, and pelvis showing no evidence of metastatic disease) or non-response (those not achieving a complete response or down-staging, or those who do not undergo a biopsy will be considered non-responders).

  4. Number of Participants with Adverse Events (AEs) According to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) [ Time Frame: Up to 8 years ]
    Number of Participants with AEs by Severity as assessed by CTCAE version 5 will be reported. Grade refers to the severity of the AE as follows: Grade 1- Mild, asymptomatic or mild symptoms, clinical or diagnostic observations only, intervention not indicated; Grade 2- Moderate, minimal, local or noninvasive intervention indicated, limiting age-appropriate instrumental Activities of Daily Living (ADL); Grade 3- Severe or medically significant but not immediately life-threatening, hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization indicated, disabling, limiting self-care ADL; Grade 4- Life-threatening consequences, urgent intervention indicated; Grade 5- Death related to AE.

  5. Number of Participants with AEs by Severity according to Patient-Reported Outcomes Version of the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI PRO-CTCAE) [ Time Frame: Up to 8 years ]
    NCI PRO-CTCAE is a patient-reported item library used to evaluate symptomatic treatment-emergent adverse events in participants on cancer clinical trials. The items selected for this study include all NCI PRO-CTCAE gastrointestinal items and urinary items. These items include taste changes, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, gas, bloating, hiccups, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, fecal incontinence, painful, urination, urinary urgency, urinary frequency, change in usual urine color, and urinary incontinence.

  6. Number of Participants with Clinical Laboratory Abnormalities [ Time Frame: Up to 8 years ]
    Number of participants with clinical laboratory abnormalities will be reported. Severity will be graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) version 5.0. Severity scale ranges from Grade 1 (Mild) to Grade 5 (Death). Grade 1= Mild, Grade 2= Moderate, Grade 3= Severe, Grade 4= Life-threatening, and Grade 5= Death related to adverse event.
