Study Summary

This trial is testing a new drug to treat bladder cancer. The new drug is being tested against the standard treatment to see if it is more effective.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults with high-grade non-muscle invasive bladder cancer who haven't had BCG treatment before. They should be in good enough health to undergo the therapy, with specific blood counts and organ functions within set limits. Women of childbearing age must use birth control, as must men, to prevent pregnancy during the study.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study compares two treatments: one group receives a combination of an immune response booster called N-803 plus BCG (a type of immunotherapy), while another group gets only BCG. It's designed to see if adding N-803 improves outcomes for patients who are new to this kind of treatment.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include irritation or discomfort in the bladder area due to intravesical administration, flu-like symptoms from immune system activation by BCG or N-803, and typical risks associated with immunotherapies such as allergic reactions.
