OBJECTIVES The individual recurrence-free period after primary surgery of patients with Ta urothelial cell carcinoma (UCC) cannot be predicted accurately. This study aims at discriminating between patients with primary Ta UCC and long or short recurrence-free periods. METHODS We investigated mRNA expression of 23 genes in 44 primary Ta tumours (23 and 21 tumours were from patients with long [>or=4 yr] or short [<or=2 yr] recurrence-free periods, respectively), using real-time quantitative… CONTINUE READING
