Brief Title: A Study of Atezolizumab Versus Placebo as Adjuvant Therapy in Patients With High-Risk Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer Who Are ctDNA Positive Following Cystectomy

A Phase III, Double-Blind, Multicenter, Randomized Study of Atezolizumab (Anti-PDL1 Antibody) Versus Placebo as Adjuvant Therapy in Patients With High-Risk Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer Who Are ctDNA Positive Following Cystectomy

ELIGIBILITY

Inclusion Criteria for the Surveillance Phase:
* Histologically confirmed MIUC (also termed TCC) of the bladder

- * TNM classification (based on AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, 8th Edition; Amin et al. 2016) at pathological examination of surgical resection specimen as follows: For patients treated with prior NAC: tumor stage of ypT2-4a or ypN+ and M0. For patients who have not received prior NAC: tumor stage of pT2-4a or pN+ and M0

- * Surgical resection of MIUC of the bladder

- * Patients who have received prior platinum-based NAC.

- * Patients who have not received prior platinum-based NAC, have refused, or are ineligible ("unfit") for cisplatin-based adjuvant chemotherapy.

- * ctDNA assay developed based on tumor tissue specimen and matched normal DNA from blood.

- * Tumor PD-L1 expression per IHC that is evaluable by central testing of a representative tumor tissue specimen.

- * Absence of residual disease and absence of metastasis, as confirmed by a negative baseline computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the pelvis, abdomen, and chest no more than 4 weeks prior to enrollment.

- * Full recovery from cystectomy and enrollment within 24 weeks following cystectomy. Minimum of 6 weeks must have elapsed from surgery.
Additional Inclusion Criteria for the Treatment Phase:
* Blood for plasma ctDNA sample evaluated to be ctDNA positive, defined as the presence of two or more mutations out of the 16 mutations identified based on patient's WES evaluable (ctDNA assay designability) report

- * Absence of residual disease and absence of metastasis, as confirmed by a negative baseline CT or MRI scan of the pelvis, abdomen, and chest no more than 28 days prior to randomization, as assessed by the investigator

- * ECOG Performance Status of <= 2 - * Life expectancy >=12 weeks

- * Adequate hematologic and end-organ function, investigator decision

- * For women of childbearing potential: agreement to remain abstinent (refrain from heterosexual intercourse) or use contraception and agreement to refrain from donating eggs
General Medical Exclusion Criteria for the Surveillance Phase:
* Known PD-L1 IHC result for adjuvant therapy. The decision for the adjuvant therapy should not be based on the PD-L1 IHC result. If a cap is in effect limiting enrollment of PD-L1 negative patients, this exclusion criterion will not apply.

- * Pregnancy or breastfeeding

- * Positive test for HIV, with the following exception: Patients with a positive HIV test at screening are eligible provided they are stable on antiretroviral therapy, have a CD4 count >= 200/µL, and have an undetectable viral load

- * Patients with active hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C. Patients with past HBV infection or resolved HBV infection are eligible. A negative HBV DNA test must be obtained in these patients prior to enrollment.
Patients positive for hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody are eligible only if polymerase chain reaction is negative for HCV RNA.
* Active tuberculosis confirmed by a test performed within 3 months prior to treatment initiation.

- * History of severe allergic, anaphylactic, or other hypersensitivity reactions to chimeric or humanized antibodies or fusion proteins

- * Known hypersensitivity to biopharmaceuticals produced in Chinese hamster ovary cells or any component of the atezolizumab formulation

- * History of autoimmune disease. Patients with a history of autoimmune-related hypothyroidism on a stable dose of thyroid replacement hormone may be eligible for this study. Patients with controlled Type I diabetes mellitus on a stable dose of insulin regimen may be eligible for this study.

- * History of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, organizing pneumonia, drug-induced pneumonitis, idiopathic pneumonitis, or evidence of active pneumonitis on screening chest CT scan. History of radiation pneumonitis in the radiation field (fibrosis) is permitted.

- * Significant cardiovascular disease, such as New York Heart Association cardiac disease (Class II or greater), myocardial infarction within the previous 3 months, unstable arrhythmias, or unstable angina
Cancer-Specific Exclusion Criteria for the Surveillance Phase:
* Any approved anti-cancer therapy, including chemotherapy, or hormonal therapy within 3 weeks prior to study enrollment

- * Adjuvant chemotherapy or radiation therapy for UC following cystectomy

- * Treatment with any other investigational agent or participation in another clinical trial with therapeutic intent within 28 days or 5 half-lives of the drug, whichever is longer, prior to enrollment

- * Malignancies other than UC within 5 years prior to study enrollment
Additional Exclusion Criteria for the Treatment Phase:
* Any approved anti-cancer therapy, including chemotherapy, or hormonal therapy within 3 weeks prior to randomization to the treatment phase Hormone-replacement therapy or oral contraceptives are allowed.

- * Adjuvant chemotherapy or radiation therapy for UC following cystectomy

- * Treatment with any other investigational agent or participation in another clinical trial with therapeutic intent within 28 days or 5 half-lives of the drug, whichever is longer, prior to randomization to the treatment phase

- * Positive test for HIV, with the following exception: Patients with a positive HIV test at screening are eligible provided they are stable on antiretroviral therapy, have a CD4 count >= 200/μL, and have an undetectable viral load.

- * Patients with active hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C

- * Active tuberculosis confirmed by a test performed within 3 months prior to treatment initiation
