Site for Phase 2 Study of Bladder-SparIng ChemoradiatioN with Durvalumab in Clinical Stage 3, node PosItive BladdeR CancEr (INSPIRE) (PSCI# 19-072) (EA8185)

The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatment of chemotherapy and radiation to adding MEDI4736 (durvalumab) immunotherapy to the usual treatment. The addition of MEDI4736 (durvalumab) immunotherapy to the usual treatment may help shrink your cancer better than the current standard of care or usual approach for bladder cancer. But, it could also cause side effects, which are described in the risks section. This study will help determine if this different approach is better than the usual approach. To decide if it is better, the study doctors will be looking to see if the study approach increases the life of patients by 6 months or more compared to the usual approach.

If you decide to take part in this study, you will either get chemotherapy and radiation for 6-8 weeks, or you will get durvalumab immunotherapy in addition to chemotherapy and radiation for 6.5-8 weeks. After you finish your study treatment, your doctor will continue to follow you for up to 3 years. The follow-up will consist of visits to his or her office and CT scans of the bladder.
