Metastatic UBC is associated with a poor prognosis and limited treatment options. PD-L1 expression is prevalent in this disease and may protect cancer cells from immune-mediated destruction by binding to its receptors PD-1 and B7.1. MPDL3280A is a human anti-PD-L1 mAb with an engineered Fc-domain designed for optimized efficacy and safety. MPDL3280A was well tolerated in this pretreated UBC population. 50% of pts treated responded to treatment. Responses were rapid and on-going. Biomarker analysis revealed pharmacodynamic markers, as well as markers of potential mechanisms of resistance to therapy. ***Updated results to be delivered at ASCO.
