Comparison of the ImmunoCyt test and urinary cytology with other urine tests in the detection and surveillance of bladder cancer

Abstract

Despite several new urine markers urinary cytology remains the gold standard for the non-invasive detection of bladder carcinoma. The use of monoclonal antibodies against tumor associated antigens offers a promising approach to improve urinary cytology. The aim of this study was to compare fluorescence immunocytology (ImmunoCyt/Ucyt+ test), alone and in… (More)
