The FDA has granted a priority review designation to a new drug application (NDA) for UGN-101 (mitomycin gel) for the treatment of patients with low-grade, upper tract urothelial cancer (UTUC).1

Previously, the FDA granted UGN-101 orphan drug designation, fast track designation, and, in October 2018, a breakthrough therapy designation for UGN-101 in this setting.
