Reuben Ben-David: Gem/Doce induction + maintenance is superior to induction only

Vignesh Packiam, Associate Professor of Urologic Oncology at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, shared a post by Reuben Ben-David, Society of Urological Oncology (SUO) fellow at the Mount Sinai Hospital NYC, on X/Twitter, adding:

Nice paper Reuben Ben-David, John Sfakianos!! Important to learn optimal Gem/Doce protocol. Data like this on the implications of maintenance are valuable. Anecdotally I have found that 2g Gem in combo regimens has more topical issues.”

Quoting Reuben Ben-David’s post:

”Excited about our latest publication!

Gem/Doce induction + maintenance is superior to induction only. The use of 2 grams of gemcitabine improved all grades of recurrence but didn’t decrease high-grade recurrences over 1 gram of gemcitabine. Gem/Doce is gaining grounds in the treatment of NMIBC.”
