Abstract

Four patients with advanced or metastatic bladder cancer progressing after MVAC chemotherapy were treated with oral piritrexim. Three of the four patients were evaluable for response, and all three had a partial response to treatment. Piritrexim may be an effective drug for bladder cancer after progression on MVAC chemotherapy.
