OBJECTIVE To determine the impact of p53 overexpression on tumor recurrence after bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) intravesical therapy in patients with nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). METHODS Between January 1999 and December 2008, 275 patients who received six BCG intravesical instillations for NMIBC (transitional cell carcinoma) after transurethral resection were assessed for differences in outcomes according to the level of p53 overexpression. A multivariate logistic regression… CONTINUE READING
