Rationale: Broccoli sprout extract contains ingredients that may prevent or slow the growth of certain cancers.
I. To determine the tolerability and toxicity of a broccoli sprout extract (providing 200 micro mol isothiocyanate/dose/per day) given for 14 days in patients destined to undergo definitive bladder resection for bladder cancer.
I. Establish the safety of administration of the broccoli extract on the bladder surgery specifically.
II. Determine the levels of isothiocyanates and their metabolites in urine, blood, benign urothelium and bladder cancer tissue.
III. Assess the antitumor effects of broccoli extract on the primary bladder tumor by measuring angiogenesis, cell proliferation and apoptosis.
IV. Determine the feasibility of treating patients with 200 micro mol isothiocyanate per dose per day of broccoli sprout extract in future therapeutic and prevention clinical trials.
Outline: Patients receive oral broccoli sprout extract once daily on days 1-14 in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 4 weeks.

This randomized early phase I trial studies how well broccoli sprout/broccoli seed extract supplement works in decreasing toxicity in heavy smokers. Broccoli sprout/broccoli seed extract s...
The purpose of this study is to examine whether broccoli sprout extract can effect lung function measurements in individuals with asthma and COPD.
Adult participants will apply a broccoli sprout extract-jojoba oil compound to one arm every night under occlusion for 1 week. Jojoba oil alone will be applied to the other arm. At the end...
The purpose of this research is to examine the effect of a broccoli sprout preparation on specific factors in breast tissue that are related to breast cancer risk and to assess whether su...
RATIONALE: Broccoli sprout extract supplements may slow the growth of tumor cells or abnormal cells and may be an effective treatment for ductal carcinoma in situ and/or atypical ductal hy...
The incidence and mortality rate of bladder cancer have dramatically expanded, so it's urgent to discover new biomarker and therapeutic target for bladder cancer. Recently, lncRNA has been identified ...
Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome, recurrent urinary tract infections and other forms of cystitis significantly impact the quality of life of patients with chronic bladder disorders and impo...
BACKGROUND Initial diagnosis of carcinoma of the urinary bladder remains challenging. N-Myc downstream-regulated gene 2 (NDRG2) has been reported to be closely correlated with cell differentiation and...
The role of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) as key components of the protective bladder barrier is well accepted. Replenishment of the GAG layer could restore the normal protective barrier function of the d...
Urinary bladder dysfunction in the form of acontractile/hypocontractile bladder is very common after spinal cord injury and it may lead to recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI), stones formation, an...
A dehydrated extract of thyroid glands. After the removal of fat and connective tissue, the extract is dried or lyophilized to yield a yellowish to buff-colored amorphous powder containing 0.17-0.23% of iodine.
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.
Body of knowledge related to the use of organisms, cells or cell-derived constituents for the purpose of developing products which are technically, scientifically and clinically useful. Alteration of biologic function at the molecular level (i.e., GENETIC ENGINEERING) is a central focus; laboratory methods used include TRANSFECTION and CLONING technologies, sequence and structure analysis algorithms, computer databases, and gene and protein structure function analysis and prediction.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Non-invasive bladder cancer is a cancer that is only in the inner lining of the bladder. Invasive bladder cancer is cancer that has spread into the deeper walls of the bladder. When the cancer has spread outside the bladder to other parts of the body, th...
