Published Online: May 14th 2020

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.
