INTRODUCTION Many epidemiological and experimental studies report a strong role of chemical carcinogens in the etiology of bladder cancer. However, involvement of trace elements in the tumorigenesis of transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder has been poorly investigated. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between zinc, copper and bladder cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Zinc and copper concentration and Cu/Zn ratio in two 36-sample series of bladder cancer tissue and sera… CONTINUE READING
