The results obtained with chemotherapy (CT) in the management of muscle-infiltrating ***transitional cell bladder carcinoma (TCBC)*** are compared with those of radiotherapy (RT) and surgery (S). Cisplatin and methotrexate are the most effective agents, with an overall response rate ranging from 20 to 45% when administered singly. Other chemotherapeutic drugs which proved of some antitumor activity in TCBC are doxorubicin and vinblastine, with an overall response rate of approximately 15% (range 4.28%). With each drug used singly, however, complete response (CR) is uncommon. Combination CT regimens (cisplatin + methotrexate, cisplatin + methotrexate + vinblastine, methotrexate + vinblastine + doxorubicin + cisplatin) are inducing a higher number of CR with an overall response rate between 40 and 70%. CT, previously used as adjuvant or salvage therapy in advanced TCBC, is now given in neo-adjuvant fashion in order to achieve tumor size reduction and control of micrometastases. With these multiagent regimens a significant down-staging can be obtained without major toxicity in over 50% of patients with muscle-infiltrating TCBC, thus increasing the number of patients which can be cured by surgery. These neo-adjuvant programs suggests potential benefit, yet randomized studies and prolonged observations are required to provide definitive results.
