Site for Multicenter Phase 3 Pivotal Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of TOOKAD (padeliporfin) Vascular Targeted Photodynamic Therapy in the Treatment of Low Grade Upper Tract Urothelial Cancer

Upper tract urothelial cancer (UTUC) is a recurrent disease. The current standard treatment for most UTUC patients requires surgery either removing some of the ureter in each operation or radical nephroureterectomy (RNU-removal of kidney and ureter) but the role of minimally invasive & kidney- preserving methods is increasing. The use of TOOKAD (padeliporfin) was investigated in a Phase 1 clinical study in the minimally-invasive treatment of UTUC with the goal of identifying safe laser/light exposure and signs that the tumor has been reduced or eliminated. Early results from this study have been highly promising, revealing the effects of tumor removal with a positive safety profile, indicating the potential role of TOOKAD (padeliporfin) in the treatment of low-grade UTUC disease. This Phase 3 study is designed to provide confirmation of the observed Phase 1 findings. Patients are expected to remain in the study for 25 to 28 months. Participation in this study will include up to 9 study visits to Hershey Medical Center and 2 phone visits.
