Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Intraaterial chemotherapy

This is an open-label, prospective, multicenter, randomized, controlled phase 3 two-arm study.Patients with locally advanced TCC of the bladder are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms

Arm 1 (treatment): Gemcitabine 800 mg/m2 intra-arterial,cisplatin 25 mg/m2 intra-arterial once a week for 3 weeks followed by 1-week rest period. Maximum of 3 cycles. Treatment begins between 1-5 weeks after radical operation (within 40 days is recommended).

Drug: Gemcitabine, Cisplatin
Gemcitabine 800 mg/m2 intra-arterial,cisplatin 25 mg/m2 intra-arterial once a week for 3 weeks followed by 1-week rest period. Maximum of 3 cycles. Treatment begins between 1-5 weeks after radical operation (within 40 days is recommended)
Other Name: GEMZAR
No Intervention: Watchful waiting
Arm 2 (control): No immediate post-surgery treatment. Patients undergo observation followed by cisplatin and gemcitabine as in arm I at local relapse, or receive intravenously chemotherapy with cisplatin and gemcitabine at multiple metastases

  Eligibility

  • Male or female, 18 years of age or older, estimated life expectancy ≥ 6 months.
  • ECOG performance status 0 or 1.
  • Serum aspartate transaminase (AST; serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase[SGOT]) and serum alanine transaminase (ALT; serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase [SGPT]) ≤ 2.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN).Total serum bilirubin≤ 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN).
  • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1500/μL
  • Platelets ≥ 75,000/μL
