Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) is committed to providing new and innovative treatments for our cancer patients whenever possible. This includes enrolling qualified patients in carefully selected clinical trials for cancer. Clinical trials are a key testing ground for determining the effectiveness and safety of new treatments and drugs for cancer and other diseases. Our doctors may recommend that cancer patients enroll in cancer clinical trials if they meet specific criteria. Cancer trials may offer patients access to treatment options that would otherwise be unavailable to them. Talk to your doctor about whether a cancer trial is a good option for you and ask about the risks and various requirements involved.

This phase III trial studies how well chemotherapy and radiation therapy work with or without atezolizumab in treating patients with localized muscle invasive bladder cancer. Radiation therapy uses high energy rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine, cisplatin, fluorouracil and mitomycin-C, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving atezolizumab with radiation therapy and chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with localized muscle invasive bladder cancer compared to radiation therapy and chemotherapy without atezolizumab.
