Detection of Bladder CA by Microsatellite Analysis (MSA)
No involved investigator sites defined.
Goal 1: To determine sensitivity and specificity of microsatellite analysis (MSA) of urine sediment, using a panel of 15 microsatellite markers, in detecting bladder cancer in participants requiring cystoscopy. This technique will be compared to the diagnostic standard of cystoscopy, as well as to urine cytology. Goal 2: To determine the temporal performance characteristics of microsatellite analysis of urine sediment. Goal 3: To determine which of the 15 individual markers or combination of markers that make up the MSA test are most predictive of the presence of bladder cancer.
