Is BALVERSA™ Right for You?
BALVERSA™ is an oral prescription medicine used to treat adults who:
- Have bladder cancer (urothelial cancer) that has spread or cannot be removed by surgery
- Have a tumor that carries a certain type of abnormal FGFR gene
- Have tried at least one other chemotherapy medicine that contains platinum, and it did not work or is no longer working
Your doctor will perform a test to check for certain types of abnormal FGFR genes, and make sure that BALVERSA™ is right for you.
How can I find out if my tumor has an abnormal FGFR gene?
A doctor will send a tissue sample from the tumor to a lab for analysis.
BALVERSA™ was studied in people whose tumors had an abnormal FGFR gene
BALVERSA™ was studied in 87 people with advanced bladder cancer who had tried at least 1 chemotherapy. Learn more about the BALVERSA™ study.
How BALVERSA™ works
