The OLYMPUS Study - Optimized DeLivery of Mitomycin for Primary UTUC Study


  • Study type

  • Study phase

  • Study IDs

  • Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:

    • Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
    • Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
    • Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.
  • During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market.

About this study

The study is investigating the ability of UroGen's MitoGel™ procedure to treat urothelial carcinoma tumors from the upper urinary tract. If this treatment will prove to be effective this will lead to the development of a new treatment approach for patients suffering from Low Grade Upper Urinary Urothelial Carcinoma (UTUC).

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.

See eligibility criteria

Main Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient is at least 18 years of age.
  2. Naive or recurrent patients with LG, non-invasive UTUC in the pyelocalyceal system.
  3. Patient has at least one (1) measurable and biopsy-confirmed papillary LG tumor, evaluated visually, ≤ 15 mm. The largest lesion should not exceed 15mm.
  4. Following biopsy patient should have at least one remaining lesion with a diameter of 5 mm.
  5. Patient with bilateral LG UTUC may be enrolled if at least one side meets the inclusion criteria for the trial and if the other kidney does not require further treatments (The other kidney can be treated prior to the beginning of the study).

Main Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient received BCG treatment for UC during the 6 months prior to Visit 1.
  2. The patient has untreated concurrent urothelial cancer in other locations other than the target area (unless treated during screening)
  3. CIS in the past in the urinary tract.
  4. Patient has a history of invasive urothelial carcinoma in the urinary tract during the past 5 (Five) years.
  5. Patient has a history of high grade papillary urothelial carcinoma in the urinary tract during the past 2 (Two) years.
  6. Patient is actively being treated or intends to be treated with systemic chemotherapy during the duration of the trial.
