Brief Summary:
This is a clinical trial studying the administration of NanoDoce as a direct injection to the bladder wall immediately after tumor resection and as an intravesical instillation. All participants will receive NanoDoce, and will be evaluated for safety and tolerability, as well as the potential effects of NanoDoce on urothelial carcinoma.

Detailed Description:

In this clinical trial, subjects with high-risk non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) or muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC), will receive NanoDoce. Subjects will be stratified into two treatment groups, Group 1 (NMIBC) and Group 2 (MIBC). All subjects will receive NanoDoce injected into the index tumor resection site on the bladder wall, immediately following transurethral resection of the bladder tumor (TURBT), followed by an initial NanoDoce intravesical instillation.

Once the TURBT resection site is healed (approximately 1 month), Group 1 (NMIBC) subjects will proceed to a 3-month Induction period (6 weekly NanoDoce intravesical instillations, followed by 6 weeks of rest). After the Induction period, following confirmation of non-recurrence, Group 1 subjects will proceed to a 3-month Maintenance period (3 weekly NanoDoce intravesical instillations, followed by 9 weeks of rest).

After NanoDoce direct injection and the initial intravesical instillation, Group 2 subjects will proceed to institutional standard of care and will not receive Induction of Maintenance intravesical instillations.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 75 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Sequential Assignment
Intervention Model Description:

Open-label, dose rising trial consisting of a dose escalation phase and a dose confirmation phase for direct injection doses. In the dose escalation phase, subjects will be enrolled in sequential cohorts of three subjects starting at the lowest concentration. The dose determined to be most suitable for further evaluation will enroll additional subjects to total up to 12 subjects at that dose level.

The study will also dose escalate Groups 1 and 2 for the intravesical instillation of NanoDoce concentrations (2.0 and 3.0 mg/mL).

Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Treatment Emergent Adverse Events (safety and tolerability) [ Time Frame: Up to End of Treatment (Month 6 for Group 1 and Day 45 for Group 2) ]
    Treatment Emergent Adverse Events will include laboratory assessments, physical examination findings, and vital signs.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetics: Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) of NanoDoce [ Time Frame: Up to End of Treatment (Month 6 for Group 1 and Day 45 for Group 2) ]
    Plasma samples will be collected to characterize the pharmacokinetics of NanoDoce.

  2. Pharmacokinetics: Peak plasma concentration (Cmax) of NanoDoce [ Time Frame: Up to End of Treatment (Month 6 for Group 1 and Day 45 for Group 2) ]
    Plasma samples will be collected to characterize the pharmacokinetics of NanoDoce.

  3. Pharmacokinetics: Time at which peak plasma concentration is observed (Tmax) of NanoDoce. [ Time Frame: Up to End of Treatment (Month 6 for Group 1 and Day 45 for Group 2) ]
    Plasma samples will be collected to characterize the pharmacokinetics of NanoDoce.

  4. Tumor Recurrence [ Time Frame: Up to End of Treatment (Month 6 for Group 1 and Day 45 for Group 2) ]
    No evidence of disease as defined by cystoscopy, cytology, and if indicated, biopsy.
