Drug Study
5 Participants
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of an experimental medicine MitoGel™ in the treatment of upper urinary tract cancer.

MitoGel™ is a combination of “Mitomycin C” and “TC-3 gel”. “Mitomycin C” is an FDA approved cancer treatment. “TC-3 gel” is a carrier gel used to deliver medicine into the upper urinary tract.

A catheter is used to deliver MitoGel™ to the upper urinary tract where the cancer is located. There, MitoGel™ warms to human body temperature and turns into a gel.

As the gel dissolves it releases the Mitomycin C cancer treatment. This allows for several hours of continuous chemotherapy treatment in a localized area. This is believed to be an improvement on current upper urinary tract cancer chemotherapy treatments.
This study requires

-Six weekly MitoGel™ installations (Catheter will be used to deliver MitoGel™ to upper urinary tract.) - Ongoing Urology related exams and blood work - Have periodic cytology (test urine cells) - Have periodic scoping (test used to visualize upper urinary tract) - Your doctor may continue monthly maintenance instillation treatments for 12 months
