The treatment paradigm for urothelial carcinoma (UC), a common genitourinary cancer, has significantly expanded in recent years. Enfortumab vedotin, a Nectin-4–targeted antibody-drug conjugate, was recently approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for patients with advanced or metastatic UC following chemotherapy and immunotherapy.
