The deletion of ABH blood group antigens from the luminal surface of the bladder mucosa in cases of well differentiated transitional cell carcinomata, and the formation of pleomorphic microvilli have both been associated with aggressive biological behaviour and invasiveness of the tumors. We have studied cold cup biopsies from 8 normal mucosae and 17… CONTINUE READING
