Abstract: Objectives : To evaluate the clinical benefit of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with gemcitabine and cisplatin (GC) in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer treated with radical cystectomy and to identify patients who may benefit from neoadjuvant chemotherapy and predictors of therapeutic response to it. Methods : In this prospective study, we enrolled 37 patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (cT2-4aNanyM0). The primary endpoint was the pathological response rate at cystectomy after receiving neoadjuvant GC chemotherapy. Univariable and multivariable analyses were used to determine predictive factors of pT0N0 and ≦pT1N0. The secondary endpoints were adverse events during chemotherapy, surgical complications, as well as overall, disease-specific, and recurrence-free survival. Results : A mean of 2.7 cycles of neoadjuvant GC was administered. Pathological complete response (pT0N0), partial response (pTisN0/pT1N0), and pathological response (≦pT1N0) rates were 24.3%, 27.0%, and 5l.3%, respectively. Grade 3 or 4 non-hematologic adverse events were rare. Three-year overall, disease-specific, and recurrence-free survival rates were 70.7%, 8l.3%, and 63.9%, respectively. Patients with pathological response (≦pT1N0) demonstrated a significantly improved 3-year overall survival rate (94.7% vs. 42.8%), disease-specific survival rate (94.7% vs.62.9%), and recurrence-free survival rate (80.6% vs.45.5%), compared with pathological non-responders (≦pT2Nany). Clinical stage cT2 and low pre-chemotherapy platelet-to-lymphocyte ratios were significant indicators of favorable pathological response to neoadjuvant Gc. Conclusions : Neoadjuvant chemotherapy using GC is safe and effective in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer, Pretreatment clinical T2 stage and low platelet-to-lymphocyte ratios were predictive markers for successful neoadjuvant treatment of muscle-invasive bladder cancer with GC.
