Bladder cancer is one of the most common types of cancer, being the sixth more frequent in men, and one with higher recurrence rates and overall treatment costs. We introduce an agent-based computational model of the urothelium, adopting a Cellular Potts Model approach to describe both a healthy urothelium and the development of bladder cancer.
We aimed to establish an immune-related gene (IRG) based signature that could provide guidance for clinical bladder cancer (BC) prognostic surveillance.
Differentially expressed IRGs and transcription factors (TFs) between BCs and normal tissues were extracted from transcriptome data downloaded from the TCGA database.
Bladder cancer is a common and widespread cancer of the human urinary system, and its incidence is increasing. Gene therapy is a promising treatment of bladder cancer. In our study, a recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV9-UPII-TK-EGFP) driven by a UPII promoter was constructed.
Aberrant expression of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) has been found to enroll in the initiation and progression of bladder cancer (BC). Earlier results show cancer-associated region long noncoding RNA-7 (CARLo-7) can be a prognostic marker for BC, but its biological function and the underlying mechanism is still to be discovered.
No consensus currently exist on the optimal treatment of patients with high-risk nonmuscle invasive (HGT1) micropapillary variant of bladder cancer (MPBC). Transcripsome analysis may allow stratification of MPBC-HGT1 enabling prediction of recurrence and guide therapeutic management for individual patients.
Over the last decade, the increased utilization of robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) in the surgical treatment of muscle-invasive bladder cancer has led to an uptrend in intracorporeal urinary diversions (ICUD).
To compare the efficacy and safety of intra-arterial chemotherapy (IAC) combined with intravesical chemotherapy (IVC) against intravesical BCG immunotherapy in high-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) after transurethral resection of the bladder tumor (TURBT).
To describe incidence and variables associated with venous thromboembolism (VTE) after robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC).
A retrospective review of the departmental database. Extended thromboprophylaxis (for 4 weeks postoperatively)was implemented November 2017.
Bladder cancer (BC) is a common tumor in the urinary system with a high recurrence rate. The individualized treatment and follow-up after surgery is the key to a successful outcome. Currently, the surveillance strategies are mainly depending on tumor stage and grade.
To compare the outcomes of robotic-assisted (RARC) vs. open radical cystectomy (ORC) at a single academic institution. We retrospectively identified patients undergoing radical cystectomy for urothelial carcinoma of the bladder at our institution from 2007 to 2017.
