ICER Publishes Final Evidence Report for Bladder Cancer Therapies

December 18, 2020

The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) today released a Final Evidence Report and Report-at-a-Glance assessing the comparative clinical effectiveness and value of nadofaragene firadenovec (Adstiladrin®, FKD Therapies Oy and FerGene) and oportuzumab monatox (Vicineum™, Sesen Bio) for the treatment of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) that is unresponsive to Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) intravesical therapy.

“For many patients with BCG-unresponsive NMIBC, there are limited interventions available that preserve the bladder,” said David Rind, MD, ICER’s Chief Medical Officer. “While our review of the evidence suggests that both nadofaragene firadenovec and oportuzumab monatox may provide benefits for patients, more rigorous trials are needed.” Read more here.
