touchONCOLOGY joins Dr Alison Birtle (Consultant Oncologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer, Rosemere Cancer Centre, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, Preston, UK) to discuss the updated primary and secondary analysis of the POUT trial in upper tract urothelial cancer (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01993979). The abstract “Updated outcomes of POUT: A phase III randomized trial of peri-operative chemotherapy versus surveillance in upper tract urothelial cancer (UTUC)” (Abstract 455) was presented at the 2021 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium, 11–13 February 2021.
- Could you give us a brief overview of upper tract urothelial carcinoma, its prognosis and the unmet needs in its treatment? (0:05)
- What did the POUT trial teach us about the clinical utility of adjuvant chemotherapy in upper tract urothelial cancer? (2:13)
- You have already talked about the updated primary and secondary endpoints, could you also continue to update us on the other secondary endpoints? (6:50)
- How will these findings impact clinical practice? (9:48)

Enrique Grande, ESMO 2022: Post-hoc analysis investigating PD-L1 expression on immune cells, and improved OS with atezolizumab in patients with urothelial cancer
PD-L1 assays use various methods to predict PD-L1/PD-1 blockade outcomes, recent data suggests clinically relevant PD-L1–expressing immune cells are dendritic cells. Dr Enrique Grande Pulido (MD Anderson Cancer Centre Madrid, Madrid, Spain) joins touchONCOLOGY to discuss a post-hoc analysis investigating PD-L1 expression on immune cells by SP142 co-localises with dendritic cells, and the associated improved overall […]
