A 12-Gene Blood-Based Signature for Detecting Metastatic Bladder Cancer

2014-08-27 03:21:33 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purposes of this study is to evaluate a new genetic-based test which will identify patients diagnosed with muscle-invasive bladder cancer before their surgery, who might have specific genes, which will increase their chances of recurrence of cancer after their surgery.

Some patients who are diagnosed with bladder cancer and have their had bladder removed, will have a recurrence of cancer sometime after their surgery. This recurrence is usually caused by tumor cells that originated from the bladder tumor and traveled to other parts of the body, which is called metastatic cancer. Some patients are more likely than others to have metastatic disease. This test may help in identifying these patients who might develop metastases from having these specific genes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The techniques used to draw blood from a vein for diagnostic purposes or for treatment of certain blood disorders such as erythrocytosis, hemochromatosis, polycythemia vera, and porphyria cutanea tarda.

Tumors or cancer of the URINARY BLADDER.

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.

The application of LEECHES to the body to draw blood for therapeutic purposes. Such medicinal leeching, an ancient medical practice, is still being used in microsurgery and the treatment of venous congestion or occlusion.

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.
