An Open-label Multi-cohort Phase 1b/2 Study of Derazantinib and Atezolizumab in Patients With Urothelial Cancer Expressing Activating Molecular FGFR Aberrations


  • Org Study ID: DZB-CS-201
  • Secondary ID: N/A
  • NCT ID: NCT04045613
  • Sponsor: Basilea Pharmaceutica


The purpose of this study was to evaluate efficacy of derazantinib monotherapy or derazantinib-atezolizumab in combination in patients with advanced urothelial cancer harboring fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) genetic aberrations (GA) of various clinical stages of disease progression and prior treatments.


The study comprised five open-label substudies (1-5) in patients with advanced urothelial cancer harboring FGFR GA (with the exception of substudy 2 which did not require a FGFR GA) who were treated by derazantinib monotherapy or derazantinib in combination with atezolizumab. The study enrolled patients with cisplatin-ineligible status, or patients whose disease progressed after either first-line treatment or prior treatment with FGFR inhibitors.
