Muscle invasive bladder cancer describes bladder cancer which has grown into the muscle layer of the bladder wall. This is usually treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
The trial is looking at combining radiotherapy with a monoclonal antibody called cetuximab given alongside standard chemotherapy drugs. Following successful phase I results where a combination of the chemotherapy drugs, 5-FU and mitomycin C, were delivered alongside cetuximab and radiotherapy, this treatment regimen is now being tested in a phase II setting to find out if it works better at preventing bladder recurrence than the current standard treatment.
