A biologics license application (BLA) has been submitted to the FDA for enfortumab vedotin for the treatment of patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial cancer who have previously received a PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor and who have received a platinum-containing chemotherapy in the neoadjuvant/adjuvant, locally advanced, or metastatic setting.1

Additionally, the ongoing EV-103 trial (NCT03288545) is evaluating enfortumab vedotin in earlier lines of treatment for patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial cancer, including in combination with pembrolizumab (Keytruda) and/or platinum chemotherapy in newly diagnosed patients as well as those whose cancer progressed from earlier-stage disease.
