About this activity
Over the past 10 years, advancements in genomics and sequencing technologies have paved the way to a more in-depth understanding of the pathogenesis of bladder cancer, leading to the discovery of new targets. The development of several novel therapies such as checkpoint inhibitors, and other targeted therapies have allowed for a more optimized treatment approach. A number of new drugs in 2019 and early 2020 were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for all stages of bladder cancer.
