The contents of urokinase-type plasminogen activator were estimated in superficial bladder cancer from 42 patients undergoing transurethral resection for the first time. Tumor recurred in 11 of 16 patients (68.8%) with high urokinase-type plasminogen activator content (8 ng. urokinase-type plasminogen activator per mg. protein and more) and in 12 of 26 (46.2%) with low urokinase-type plasminogen activator content. In the high content group 8 patients (50%) had disease progression compared to 2… CONTINUE READING
