Brief Summary:


Primary objective

Evaluation of efficacy in terms of progression-free survival at 9 months of the combination of intensified methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin and cisplatin with or without panitumumab as first-line treatment of advanced urothelial carcinoma in patients without Harvey nor Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog mutations.

Secondary objectives

  • To assess toxicity
  • To assess response rate
  • To assess overall survival
  • To assess time to progression
  • To study the correlation between response rate, time to progression, overall survival and biological parameters
