OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prognostic significance of survivin in tumour tissues and that of survivin-expressing circulating tumour cells (CTCs) in T1G3 bladder tumours, as the prognosis of T1G3 bladder cancer is highly variable and unpredictable from clinical and pathological prognostic factors. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 54 patients with T1G3 non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Additional inclusion criteria were: tumour size <3 cm, absence of carcinoma in situ and multifocality… CONTINUE READING
