Study of Rogaratinib (BAY1163877) vs Chemotherapy in Patients With FGFR (Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor)-Positive Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma


Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions: Transitional cell carcinoma
  • Age: Between 18 - 100 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Existence of archival or fresh biopsy for FGFR testing
  • FGFR testing of patients will be performed at the investigators' discretion up to a max. of 90 days prior to start of screening.

Investigators should ensure all patients will be eligible in terms of disease status and lines of treatment within this timeframe.

  • Documented urothelial carcinoma (transitional cell carcinoma) including urinary bladder, renal pelvis, ureters, urethra meeting all of the following criteria
  • Histologically or cytologically confirmed (patients with mixed histologies are required to have a dominant transitional cell pattern.)
  • Locally advanced (T4b, any N; or any T, N 23) or metastatic disease (any T, any N and M1). Locally advanced bladder cancer must be unresectable i.e. invading the pelvic or abdominal wall (stage T4b) or presenting with bulky nodal disease (N2-3).
  • ECOG (Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group) Performance Status of 0 or 1
  • Disease progression during or following treatment with at least one platinum-containing regimen (patients should have been treated for at least 2 cycles). In patients who received prior adjuvant/neoadjuvant platinum-containing chemotherapy, progression had to occur within 12 months of treatment.
  • High FGFR1 or 3 mRNA (Messenger ribonucleic acid) expression levels (RNAscope score of 3+ or 4+; measurement is part of this protocol) in archival or fresh Tumor biopsy specimen
  • At least 1 measurable lesion according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST v.1.1) in contrast enhanced (unless contraindicated) CT or MRI

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous or concurrent cancer except
  • cervical carcinoma in situ
  • treated basal-cell or squamous cell skin carcinoma
  • any cancer curatively treated > 3 years before randomization
  • Curatively treated incidental prostate cancer (T1/T2a)
  • Ongoing or previous anti-cancer treatment within 4 weeks before randomization.
  • More than two prior lines of systemic anti-cancer therapy for urothelial carcinoma
  • Ongoing or previous treatment with anti-FGFR directed therapies (e.g. receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors including rogaratinib or FGFRspecific antibodies) or with taxanes or vinflunine
  • Unresolved toxicity higher than National Cancer Institute's Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, version 4.03 (CTCAE v.4.03) Grade 1 attributed to any prior therapy/procedure excluding alopecia, anemia and/or hypothyroidism
  • History or current condition of an uncontrolled cardiovascular disease including any of the following conditions:
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF) NYHA (New York Heart Association) > Class 2
  • Unstable angina (symptoms of angina at rest) or new-onset angina (within last 3 months before randomization)
  • Myocardial infarction (MI) within past 6 months before randomization
  • Unstable cardiac arrhythmias requiring anti-arrhythmic therapy. Patients with arrhythmia under control with anti-arrhythmic therapy such as beta-blockers or digoxin are eligible.
  • Arterial or venous thrombotic events or embolic events such as cerebrovascular accident (including transient ischemic attacks), deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism within 3 months before randomization
  • Current evidence of endocrine alteration of calcium Phosphate homeostasis (e.g. parathyroid disorder, history of parathyroidectomy, tumor lysis, tumoral calcinosis, paraneoplastic hypercalcemia)
  • Any hemorrhage / bleeding event CTCAE v.4.03 Grade 3 within 4 weeks before randomization
  • Current diagnosis of any retinal detachment, retinal pigment epithelial detachment (RPED), serous retinopathy or retinal vein occlusion

Recruitment Status: Closed
