Vinflunine (VFL) is a microtubule inhibitor approved by EMA as treatment after platinum progressionin metastatic UC. We evaluated whether maintenance VFL delays progression after response to CT.


Patients (pts) with measurable disease, locally recurrent/metastatic UC and adequate organ functionwith radiological response or stabilization after 4-6cycles (cy) of a cisplatin/gemcitabine chemotherapy (carboplatinallowed after cy 4) were randomized (R) 1:1 to receive VFL 320 or 280mg/m2 (in case of PS1, age ≥75years, priorpelvic radiotherapy (RT) or CrCl 


88pts from 21 institutions of SOGUG were R between 04/2012-01/2015. Forty five in the VFL arm and 43 inthe BSC arm. 1pt was not treated. 1 of 87 treated pts was not eligible due to an excess of time between the last doseof cisplatin and the start of VFL. At the beginning of treatment: median age 64years [42-83]; PS1 50%; Hb


Maintenance VFL significantly reduced the risk of disease progression in patients with metastaticdisease obtaining benefit from first line cisplatin-based CT. Treatment was well tolerated. Data is maturing to assessits impact in overall survival.
