Site for Phase III Randomized Trial of Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy with or without Atezolizumab in Localized Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer (Study SWOG/NRG 1806) (PSCI#19-044)
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects, good and/or bad, of chemotherapy and radiation therapy with or without the use of atezolizumab, which is used to treat bladder cancer. The combination of chemotherapy, radiation therapy and the immunotherapy atezolizumab is considered experimental. If you decide to take part in this study, you will receive combined chemotherapy and radiation therapy which is called “chemoradiotherapy” either with or without the study drug. The chemoradiotherapy you will receive is standard of care and what your doctor thinks is best. You will receive chemoradiotherapy for up to 7 weeks. If you are assigned to the group receiving study drug, you will take the drug for up to 6 months in addition the chemoradiotherapy. Your doctor will continue to follow your condition for up to 5 years after you register to the study, even though you have finished treatment in the first year. Your doctor will watch you for side effects and to see how your cancer affects you. You will have clinic visits at 3 months from the time you stop taking treatment for the first two years and then twice a year for the third year and once a year thereafter until 5 years after you register to the study.
