of  Trodelvy  ( sacituzumab govitecan -hziy)for use in adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial cancer
(UC) who have previously received a platinum-containing chemotherapy and either
a programmed death receptor-1 (PD-1) or a programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1)
inhibitor. The accelerated approval was based on data from the international
Phase 2, single-arm TROPHY study. Of the 112 patients who were evaluable for
efficacy, 27.7% of those treated with Trodelvy responded to treatment, with
5.4% experiencing a complete response and 22.3% experiencing a partial
response. The median duration of response was 7.2 months (95% CI: 4.7-8.6). The
