This study aimed to determine whether robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) can accelerate recovery, improve pelvic lymph node dissection effects, and reduce serum tumor marker tumor specific growth factor (TSGF) levels in patients with bladder cancer.
This study reports the safety and efficacy of Oncofid-P-B, a novel compound under development by Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A. with specific binding to CD44 receptor, in patients with CIS unresponsive or intolerant to BCG.
Follow-up for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) is a challenge for urologists that has not been finally resolved. The intensity of follow-up is based on the recurrence and progression behavior of the tumor as well as the patient's individual situation.
Transurethral resection of the urinary bladder (TURB) is the standard intervention in the diagnostic workup and treatment of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. In order to minimize cancer recurrence and potential complications, continuous technical development of TURB is of high clinical interest.
On the basis of the discussion of the current state of research on relevant topics of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) among a group of experts of the Spanish Oncology Genitourinary (SOGUG) Working Group, recommendations were proposed to overcome the challenges posed by the management of NMIBC in clinical practice.
The association between tobacco use and urothelial cancer of the bladder is well known. Given the worsening tobacco epidemic, here we make the case for systematic targeted points of intervention for urologists and other professionals to intervene against bladder cancer.
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) prior to radical cystectomy (RC) in patients with non-metastatic muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) confers an absolute survival benefit of 5-10%. There is evidence that molecular differences between tumors may impact response to therapy, highlighting a need for clinically validated biomarkers to predict response to NAC.
High recurrence rates, frequent surveillance strategies and current multidisciplinary treatment approaches make urothelial carcinoma of bladder (UCB) one of the most expensive cancers to clinically manage.
Bladder cancer is the 10th most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world, accounting for around 573,000 new cases and 213,000 deaths in 2020. The current standard treatment for locally advanced bladder cancer is neoadjuvant cisplatin (NAC)-based chemotherapy followed by cystectomy.
To investigate to the incidence and mortality of BCG infections in Finnish population of patients with bladder cancer treated with BCG instillations.
We conducted a nationwide register study and identified patients with BCG infections in Finland during 1996-2016 using the Finnish cancer registry and the Finnish National Infectious Diseases Register.
