Prof Daniel Petrylak talks to ecancer at the 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about a study looking at the novel agent enfortumab vedotin targeting Nectin-4 as treatment for patients with advanced urothelial cancer.

He explains that Nectin-4 is a protein that helps cancer cells stick together and it is expressed in 97% urothelial cancers.

Prof Petrylak reports that overall 44% of patients who received the targeting agent responded to treatment and also that a response was seen across the different subgroups.
