Because of its lower toxicity and good tolerability and response, gemcitabine has been described as one of the most highly promising drugs for urinary bladder cancer therapy. Its phosphorylated active-dFdCTP metabolite can incorporate into DNA, causing replication blockage. Additionally, it is known that mutations in the TP53 gene are related to the high(More)
The combination of gemcitabine and cisplatin has been shown previously to elicit a synergistic therapeutic effect on bladder cancer cell lines and result in reduced cell survival. However, the precise mechanism by which cells die has not been elucidated. Cell cycle-related genes are the predominant targets of chemotherapeutic protocols. Therefore, molecular(More)
