Medical treatment of advanced urothelial carcinoma of the bladder consists of perioperative treatments as well as palliative chemotherapy in advanced stages. This article focuses on important clinical trials and developments of the last two years, with a review of literature and proceedings of the relevant meetings (ASCO, GU-ASCO, EAU, AUA). The general benefit of perioperative chemotherapy is confirmed. Chemotherapy with Gemcitabin/Cisplatin remains the therapy of choice in the palliative setting. So far, targeted therapies did not show convincing results.
