To evaluate the activity of intravesical administration of CG0070 and intravenous administration of Pembrolizumab in patients with tissue pathology-confirmed non-muscular invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) who have Bacillus-Calmette-Guerin (BCG) unresponsive disease with carcinoma in situ (CIS) with or without Ta/T1 papillary disease.

Official Title

A Phase 2, Single Arm Study of CG0070 Combined With Pembrolizumab in Patients With Non Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer (NMIBC) Unresponsive to Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG)


An opened label trial designed to evaluate CG0070 and DDM in combination with Pembrolizumab in patients with NMIBC who have failed prior BCG therapy.

The target population of 37 subjects with CIS with or without concomitant high-grade Ta or T1 papillary disease will be enrolled.

BCG failure is defined as persistent or recurrent disease within 12 months of completion of adequate BCG therapy.


Non Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer, high-grade Ta papillary disease, high-grade T1 papillary disease, carcinoma in situ, Bacillus-Calmette-Guerin Unresponsive, Urinary Bladder Neoplasms, Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Neoplasms, Pembrolizumab, Pembrolizumab Injection, n-dodecyl-B-D-maltoside
