- InterventionsPatients with a T1 to a T4a bladder carcinoma might be eligible for this study (see protocol section 4.5). Baseline investigations, prior to treatment, will include history, concomitant drug use, blood analysis, cystoscopy (resections or biopsies are optional), EGFR and RAS status and a CT of thorax and abdomen.
Patients with N0 disease will have a lymph node dissection (pN0-1 allowed) followed by 2-4 courses of platinum based chemotherapy, while N1-2 patients will be treated with 2-4 courses of platinum based chemotherapy followed by a lymph node dissection (pN0-1 allowed). During chemotherapy treatment patients will visit their physician at least prior to every course of treatment where history and concomitant drug use will be taken and blood analysis will be performed. After completion of chemotherapeutic treatment and lymph node dissection, and prior to concomitant radiotherapy and Panitumumab treatment, a CT of thorax and abdomen will be made and a cystoscopy will be performed Within four weeks after completion of chemotherapy or lymph node dissection (N+ disease), radiotherapeutic treatment in combination with Panitumumab treatment will start. A six-week course of radiotherapy with curative intent will be administered to the patients (30-33 fractions of 2 Gy). Panitumumab treatment will be initiated one week before radiotherapy and administered every 2 weeks during radiotherapy to a total of four courses of 6 mg/kg. Visits during combined radiotherapy/Panitumumab treatment will be every two weeks with recording history, concomitant drug use and acute toxicity and blood analysis. After completion of treatment follow-up will start with visits every three months with a total of two years. During follow-up visits history, drug use and toxicity will be recorded and blood analysis will be performed. At 6, 12 , 18 and 24 months after completion of treatment a CT of the pelvis will be made, while a cystoscopy (resections or biopsies are optional) will be performed every three months.
- Primary outcomeAcute Toxicity rate during radiotherapy with Panitumumab treatment.
- Secondary outcome1. Complete response rate at 3 months;
2. Local control rate at 6, 12, and 18 months, and at 2 years;
3. Bladder preservation rate;
4. Any grade 3 or 4 adverse event during and within one month after completion of therapy.
- TimepointsDuring radiotherapy in combination with Panitumumab vistits every two weeks. In follow-up visits every 3 months until two years.

- Brief summaryThere is renewed interest to explore new organ preserving strategies for invasive bladder cancer. Our goal is to develop an effective treatment strategy for bladder preservation combing radiotherapy with EGFR targeting after induction chemotherapy. This new bladder preserving strategy should eventually be tested against cystectomy in a randomized Phase III trial. Although radiotherapy is an effective bladder preserving treatment modality for invasive bladder cancer, the results leave substantial room for improvement. Several studies have evaluated the efficacy of radiotherapy in combination with chemotherapy. However, current chemo-radiation schedules are quite toxic and approximately 1/3 of the patients need a salvage cystectomy as a result of insufficient response to the treatment. Therefore, new, more effective, approaches to combined modality treatments of bladder cancer are needed. As EGFR status seems to be linked to the response to radiotherapy, its inhibition might enhance the radio-responsiveness of bladder tumors. The first fully human monoclonal antibody directed against the EGFR receptor Panitumumab has a high affinity for the EGFR receptor and is characterized by a low incidence of doselimiting toxicity. Therefore, the combination of radiotherapy with Panitumumab is attractive to explore. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of radiotherapy with Panitumumab in bladder cancer treatment.
