Summary of "Phase II Trial of Neoadjuvant Systemic Chemotherapy Followed by Extirpative Surgery for Patients with High Grade Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma."

Data supporting neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in high-grade (HG) upper-tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is scant. This multi-institution prospective phase II trial investigated pathologic complete response (pCR) after NAC for HG UTUC.
