Advanced/Metastatic Disease

The purpose of this study is to test the safety of the study drug, atezolizumab, when combined with the standard chemotherapy drugs, gemcitabine and cisplatin (or GC). This study will help researchers begin to understand whether combining GC with atezolizumab is better, the same, or worse than the usual approach of using GC alone.

Study of Pembrolizumab With or Without Platinum-based Combination Chemotherapy Versus Chemotherapy Alone in Urothelial Carcinoma (MK-3475-361/KEYNOTE-361) The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab (MK-3475) with or without chemotherapy versus chemotherapy alone in participants with advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (bladder cancer). The primary hypotheses are that pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy is superior to chemotherapy alone with res

The main purpose of this study is to find out the dose of enzalutamide that can be safely given with gemcitabine and cisplatin in patients with advanced bladder cancer. Researchers also want to find out the side effects of these drugs when given together. This study will also help in finding out the effect on tumor of the combination of enzalutamide, gemcitabine and cisplatin.

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of sirolimus when given together with cisplatin and gemcitabine hydrochloride and to see how well they work in treating patients with bladder cancer. Biological therapies, such as sirolimus, may stimulate or suppress the immune system in different ways and stop tumor cells from growing. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and gemcitabine hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killin

This research trial studies two types of tests, an ultrasound test and a biomarker test, to see how well they predict how aggressive (invasive) bladder cancer is in samples from patients with bladder cancer. The aggressiveness of a tumor means how likely it is to invade the body and spread. The ultrasound test uses a fluorescent dye and stimulates cells under a microscope to see how they respond. This may allow doctors to predict how likely the cancer cells are to spread in the body. The biomark

This pilot research trial studies how well myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSC) clinical assay works in finding and monitoring cancer cells in blood and urine samples from patients with or without localized or metastatic bladder cancer. Studying samples of blood and urine from patients with or without bladder cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to cancer and may help doctors improve ways to diagnose and treat patients.

This prospective pilot study will enroll 30 patients with cT2/T3-N0-M0 urothelial carcinoma of the bladder for whom radical cystectomy with pelvic lymph node dissection is planned. This pilot study is designed to provide preliminary information on the accuracy of [18F] Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography MRI (FDG-PET-MRI) in the staging of muscle-invasive

Everolimus for Cancer With TSC1 or TSC2 Mutation   In this research study, the investigators are evaluating the clinical benefit of everolimus in cancer patients with inactivating TSC1 or TSC2 mutations or activating MTOR mutations. This research study is a Phase II clinical trial, which tests the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug called everolimus to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific cancer. "Investigational" means that the drug is being studied.

The Effect of Atezolizumab in Combination With Gemcitabine/Carboplatin and Gemcitabine/Carboplatin Alone in Participants With Untreated Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma Who Are Ineligible for Cisplatin-based Therapy [IMvigor130]   This is a Phase III, multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of atezolizumab (anti programmed death-ligand 1 [PD-L1] antibody) in combination with gemcitabine/carboplatin versus pla

 Genomic Based Assignment of Therapy in Advanced Urothelial Carcinoma   Advanced urothelial cancer has no cure. But only a few chemotherapy drugs have been tested for it. The Co-eXpression ExtrapolatioN (COXEN) model predicts if cells respond to treatment. It may also help determine which drugs fight urothelial cancer based on the characteristics of a tumor. Researchers want to test if this model can choose the best therapy for advanced urothelial cancer within 3 weeks and how tumors r
