Syed A. Hussain, MD, of the University of Sheffield, discusses phase II findings comparing nintedanib or placebo in combination with gemcitabine and cisplatin in locally advanced muscle-invasive bladder cancer. The data showed that adding nintedanib was safe and well tolerated, with a significant improvement in progression-free and overall survival at 1 and 2 years (Abstract 438).

Disease control was also reported in patients older than age 75 (Abstract 325).
