Details and patient eligibility


To evaluate the activity of intravesical administration of CG0070 and intravenous administration of Pembrolizumab in patients with tissue pathology-confirmed non-muscular invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) who have Bacillus-Calmette-Guerin (BCG) unresponsive disease with carcinoma in situ (CIS) with or without Ta/T1 papillary disease.

Full description

An opened label trial designed to evaluate CG0070 and DDM in combination with Pembrolizumab in patients with NMIBC who have failed prior BCG therapy.

The target population of 37 subjects with CIS with or without concomitant high-grade Ta or T1 papillary disease will be enrolled.

BCG failure is defined as persistent or recurrent disease within 12 months of completion of adequate BCG therapy.


35 patients




18+ years old


No Healthy Volunteers

Inclusion and exclusion criteria

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0 to 1

  • Pathologically confirmed NMIBC with CIS (with or without Ta/T1 disease)

  • Unresponsive to prior BCG therapy (Lerner 2015) defined as persistent or recurrent CIS alone or with recurrent Ta/T1 (noninvasive papillary disease/tumor invades the sub- epithelial connective tissue) disease within 12 months of completion of adequate BCG therapy. An assessment within 15 months can also qualify when no assessment was performed within 12 months after completion of adequate BCG therapy.

    • Adequate BCG is defined as at least 5 treatments with induction BCG followed by at least 2 BCG treatments as reinduction or maintenance
  • Ineligible for radical cystectomy or refusal of radical cystectomy

  • Adequate organ function

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • Immuno-deficient due to chronic steroid or other immunosuppressant use, HIV, or prior organ transplant
  • Prior treatment with adenovirus-based cancer therapy
  • Prior therapy with or intolerant to prior checkpoint inhibitor therapy
  • Clinically significant or active cardiac disease
  • Active autoimmune disease

Trial design

Primary purpose




Interventional model

Single Group Assignment


None (Open label)

35 participants in 1 patient group

Single Arm
Experimental group
CG0070 will be administered intravesically (IVE) following a sequence of bladder washes with 5% DDM and normal saline. CG0070 will be administered weekly x 6 on Day 1 to Week 6. If the patient shows persistent high-grade disease at Week 12, the patient will receive another cycle of 6 weekly treatments. If there is no disease present at Week 12 (e.g., complete response) then the patient will receive 3 weekly treatments. Beginning at Week 24, patients will receive weekly x 3 treatments every 3 months through Week 48 then every 24 weeks thereafter. Pembrolizumab will be given intravenous (IV) concurrently starting on Day 1 and continue every 3 weeks for up to 2 years.
