“Significant update from UGN-101’s OLYMPUS trial continues to provide clear support for approval in low-grade UTUC, and tracks to prior readouts. URGN began the rolling NDA process in December, and will supplement the filing as remaining evaluations are completed. Final data may be presented at May’s AUA meeting. We expect UGN-101 to be approved in 4Q19 and to serve a $500M+ peak sales opportunity.”
