ImmunoCyt/uCyt™ is a fluorescent test combining three monoclonal antibodies. In this study, it has been tested as a complement to cytology in the detection of urothelial carcinoma in urine. It has been performed simultaneously with standard cytology and cystoscopy on 870 urine analyses from one hospital. In 136 cases, one or more bladder tumors were found. Overall sensitivity of cytology, ImmunoCyt/uCyt™ and combined analyses reached 29, 74 and 84%, respectively, and overall specificity was 98… CONTINUE READING
