UroGen Pharma Ltd. (NASDAQ:URGN), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing treatments to address unmet needs in uro-oncology, today announced a new presentation from the pivotal Phase 3 OLYMPUS trial of UGN-101 (mitomycin gel) for instillation, an investigational formulation for the primary non-surgical treatment of patients with low-grade upper tract urothelial cancer (LG UTUC). The analysis, which discusses the minimally invasive chemoablation approach of UGN-101 to potentially treat LG UTUC tumors, including those that are unresectable, will be presented on Sunday, May 5, 2019 in an oral presentation during the plenary session at the 114th American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting in Chicago. The text for the abstract is available online through the Journal of Urology website.

'The treatment of LG UTUC remains a technical challenge for urologists, given the anatomical complexity of the kidney and the physical limits of endoscopic instrumentation,' said Mark P. Schoenberg, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of UroGen. 'UroGen is committed to raising the standard of care for this typically elderly patient population whose current options consist of repetitive endoscopic surgical intervention or complete loss of a kidney. We look forward to presenting this UGN-101 analysis that further underscores the unmet need in patients with new and recurrent LG UTUC.'
