Dr. Geoffrey Sklar, Chief Medical Officer, Chesapeake Urology Associates, spoke with OncLive about some of the exciting advancements in bladder cancer during the LUGPA Annual Meeting.
 
The PD-L1 inhibitor drugs that have been approved for advanced bladder cancer are currently an exciting topic. A big question that remains is whether these can be effective in early disease as a neoadjuvant treatment, Sklar says.
 
Other areas, such as high-grade non-invasive bladder cancers, are currently an enigma, as there are not many treatments available. The goal is to see if there is a place for these diseases in that treatment paradigm, Sklar says.
