In the ATLAS trial, UGN-102 met its primary endpoint of disease-free survival, reducing risk of recurrence, progression, or death by 55%. UGN-102 also showed a 64.8% complete response rate at three months for patients who only received UGN-102, compared to a 63.6% complete response rate at three months for patients who only received a TURBT.
The ENVISION trial met its primary endpoint by demonstrating that patients treated with UGN-102 had a 79.2% rate of complete response at 3-months following the initial treatment. Additional data evaluating the secondary endpoint of duration of response from ENVISION, and the submission of a New Drug Application (NDA) (assuming additional positive findings) to the
“UGN-102 has demonstrated a robust and consistent therapeutic profile across multiple clinical trials, providing a compelling picture of its potential to be a transformational product and advance the standard of care away from repetitive surgery to a minimally invasive, non-surgical option for LG-IR-NMIBC,” says
In both trials, UGN-102, a sustained release, hydrogel-based formulation that is designed to enable longer exposure of bladder tissue to mitomycin, thereby enabling the treatment of tumors by non-surgical means, was generally well tolerated, with a side effect profile similar to that of previous clinical trials.
“While TURBT is the standard treatment for bladder cancer, the recurrent nature of LG-IR-NMIBC means that patients will undergo multiple surgeries that come with risks for this older patient population,” says
The Phase 3 ATLAS clinical trial, the predecessor to ENVISION, evaluated the efficacy, durability, and safety of UGN-102 with or without TURBT vs. TURBT alone in 282 patients with LG-IR-NMIBC. ENVISION evaluated the efficacy and safety of UGN-102 as a primary chemoablative therapy in 240 patients with LG-IR-NMIBC.

UGN-102 (mitomycin) for intravesical solution is an investigational drug formulation of mitomycin in Phase 3 development for the treatment of LG-IR-NMIBC. Utilizing UroGen’s proprietary RTGel® technology, a sustained release, hydrogel-based formulation, UGN-102 is designed to enable longer exposure of bladder tissue to mitomycin, thereby enabling the treatment of tumors by non-surgical means. UGN-102 is delivered to patients using a standard urinary catheter in an outpatient setting. Assuming positive findings from the ENVISION Phase 3 study, UroGen anticipates submitting a New Drug Application (NDA) for UGN-102 in 2024. If approved, UGN-102 would be the first non-surgical primary therapeutic to treat a subset of bladder cancer characterized by high recurrence rates and multiple surgeries.
The Phase 3 ENVISION trial is a single-arm, multinational, multicenter study evaluating the efficacy and safety of UGN-102 (mitomycin) for intravesical solution as primary chemoablative therapy in patients with low-grade, intermediate-risk NMIBC. The Phase 3 ENVISION trial completed target enrollment with approximately 240 patients across 56 sites. Study participants received six once-weekly intravesical instillations of UGN-102. The primary endpoint evaluated the complete response rate at the 3-month assessment after the first instillation, and the key secondary endpoint will evaluate durability over time in patients who achieved a complete response at the three-month assessment. Based on discussions with the FDA, and assuming positive findings, UroGen anticipates submitting an NDA for UGN-102 in 2024.

ATLAS is a global, open-label, randomized controlled Phase 3 trial designed to assess the efficacy and safety of UGN-102, with or without TURBT, vs. TURBT alone in patients diagnosed with LG-IR-NMIBC. The trial enrolled 282 patients in clinical sites in the
UroGen is a biotech company dedicated to developing and commercializing innovative solutions that treat urothelial and specialty cancers because patients deserve better options. UroGen has developed RTGel® reverse-thermal hydrogel, a proprietary sustained release, hydrogel-based platform technology that has the potential to improve therapeutic profiles of existing drugs. UroGen’s sustained release technology is designed to enable longer exposure of the urinary tract tissue to medications, making local therapy a potentially more effective treatment option. JELMYTO® (mitomycin) for pyelocalyceal solution and investigational treatment UGN-102 (mitomycin) for intravesical solution for patients with low-grade non-muscle invasive bladder cancer are designed to ablate tumors by non-surgical means.
