Summary

Purposes are to determine whether various cohorts of bladder cancer patients have detectable tCTC's, determine it tCTC levels vary with the natural history of bladder cancer and to see if tCTC's provide novel information.Study population are various cohorts of patients diangosed with urothelial carcinoma of the bladder.Procedures include a venous blood draw, up to two times, over a 6 month period for collection of tCTC's. Up to 15 mL's of blood will be collected at each blood draw.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Development of a library collection, including the determination and coordination of selection policy, assessment of needs of users and potential users, collection use studies, collection evaluation, identification of collection needs, selection of materials, planning for resource sharing, collection maintenance and weeding, and budgeting.

A HERNIA-like condition in which the weakened pelvic muscles cause the URINARY BLADDER to drop from its normal position. Fallen urinary bladder is more common in females with the bladder dropping into the VAGINA and less common in males with the bladder dropping into the SCROTUM.

Involuntary discharge of URINE as a result of physical activities that increase abdominal pressure on the URINARY BLADDER without detrusor contraction or overdistended bladder. The subtypes are classified by the degree of leakage, descent and opening of the bladder neck and URETHRA without bladder contraction, and sphincter deficiency.

An abnormal passage in the URINARY BLADDER or between the bladder and any surrounding organ.

The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.
