We are joined by our Editor-in-Chief for European Oncology & Haematology, Axel S Merseburger, to discuss the recent results of the OLYMPUS trial, an ongoing, single-arm, multicenter trial enrolling 71 patients with treatment-naïve or recurrent low-grade non-invasive UTUC with at least one measurable papillary tumor located above the ureteropelvic junction.
For further information on this trial, please follow the following links
1. Before the approval of mitomycin pyelocalyceal, how was low-grade upper tract urothelial cancer treated, and what are the treatment challenges associated with the upper urinary tract? (0:06)

3. Could you tell us about the aims, design and inclusion criteria of the OLYMPUS trial? (1:56)
4. What were the major efficacy and safety findings of this trial? (3:16)
5. What patients are most likely to benefit from this therapy and how might it impact the future of urothelial cancer? (4:10)
