BACKGROUND: Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is the reference standard treatment for patients with high-grade, non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). We previously described noncompliance with guidelines for BCG use in patients with high-risk disease. In the current study, we sought to characterize how the number of endoscopic resections of bladder tumors affects BCG utilization using population-level data. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We queried a Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER)-Medicare linked database to evaluate claims records of 4776 patients diagnosed with high-grade NMIBC between 1992 and 2002 and followed until 2007, who survived for at least 2 years and who did not undergo definitive treatment with cystectomy, radiotherapy, or systemic chemotherapy...

OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of 2'-hydroxyflavanone on proliferation, invasion and migration of bladder cancer cells and its mechanism. METHODS: MTT assay was used to detect the effect of 2'-hydroxyflavanone on proliferation of bladdercancer cells, and the proliferation inhibition rate was calculated. Wound healing assay and Transwell (TM); assay were conducted to study the effect of 2'-hydroxyflavanone on migration and invasion of bladder cancer cells, respectively...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Recent advances in endoscopy have enabled microscopic imaging of live bladdercancer cells in situ. The newly developed Endocystoscopy system (Olympus Medical Systems Co., Tokyo, Japan) is a flexible digital endoscope that has more than a 450-fold magnifying power on a video monitor. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This supermagnifying endoscope was used to evaluate bladder carcinoma in five patients through the working channel of a rigid cystoscope...
