Treatment of bladder cancer is influenced by a number of factors including disease stage and histology. The swift entry of immune checkpoint inhibitors has transformed the treatment algorithm for bladder cancer; they are becoming entrenched options owing to their tolerability and impressive efficacy. Though platinum-based chemotherapy remains as standard, Merck & Co.’s PD-1 inhibitor, Keytruda, and Roche/Genentech’s PD-L1 inhibitor, Tecentriq, are revolutionizing the treatment algorithm for advanced patients ineligible to receive standard cisplatin-based therapy.
