To compare the toxicity and efficacy of intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) immunotherapy and mitomycin C (MMC) chemotherapy in the prophylaxis of recurrent transitional cell carcinoma, 469 patients with completely resected stage Ta or TI transitional cell carcinoma were enrolled in a randomized Southwest Oncology Group Phase III study. All patients(More)
BACKGROUND Results of studies of fluid consumption and its association with bladder cancer have been inconsistent. Few studies have considered modification effects from genetic variants that may interact with the type of consumed fluids. UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs), which are membrane-bound conjugating enzymes, catalyse the transformation of(More)
Candidate gene and genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified 11 independent susceptibility loci associated with bladder cancer risk. To discover additional risk variants, we conducted a new GWAS of 2422 bladder cancer cases and 5751 controls, followed by a meta-analysis with two independently published bladder cancer GWAS, resulting in a(More)
At present, results of marker studies are often inconsistent and sometimes contradictory. Recognized problems include multiple different methods of performing the assays, different subsets of patients and different endpoints, leading to incompatible datasets. Although there has been discussion of establishing general methodological principles and guidelines(More)
OBJECTIVE Diagnosis and surveillance of high risk non muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) represent specific challenges to urologists. In contrast to low/intermediate risk tumors, these tumors recur more frequently. A significant number will eventually progress to muscle-invasive bladder cancer, a life threatening disease requiring extensive therapeutic(More)
Expert’s summary: The authors reviewed a series of 154 patients who received intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) at the University of Wisconsin from 1991 to 2003. Carcinoma in situ and/or high-grade papillary bladder cancer was present in 46 patients, and 43 of them had data available for review. Of those 43 patients, 20 were taking 81 mg or 325 mg(More)
The Third Annual Albert Institute Bladder Symposium was held on September 8-10th, 2016, in Denver Colorado. Participants discussed several critical topics in the field of bladder cancer: 1) Best practices for tissue analysis and use to optimize correlative studies, 2) Modeling bladder cancer to facilitate understanding and innovation, 3) Targeted therapies(More)
