The standard management for patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer(MIBC) involves radical cystectomy and pelvic lymph node dissection. Although this treatment may be curative, a large proportion of patients will develop recurrence and will ultimately die of metastatic disease. Prospective, randomized clinical trial data demonstrate a survival advantage for those patients who receive neoadjuvant chemotherapy(NAC) prior to radical cystectomy and this concept was confirmed by meta-analysis. The administration of cisplatin-based combination NAC has consistently demonstrated a survival benefit of 5%. The pathologic downstaging is used as a surrogate end point. The efficacy of NAC for MIBC was established primarily with methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin, and cisplatin(MVAC), with complete response rates(pT0) as high as 38%. Dose dense M-VAC(DDMAVC) is preferred over standard MVAC, and gemcitabine/cisplatin is a reasonable alternative to standard M-VAC for NAC. In Korea, while NAC use has slowly increased over time, it remains an underutilized therapeutic approach in Korean clinical practice. (Korean J Urol Oncol 2015;13:66-74)
