A Methylation Panel for Bladder Cancer

Gazdar, AdiUT Southwestern Medical Center

No involved investigator sites defined.

Prostate and Urologic Cancers Research Group

Participate in a prevalidation study for methylation based detection of bladder cancer. In addition, a panel of three markers identified will be evaluated for their ability to a) identify bladder cancer patients from those with benign urologic disease; b) identify patients with superficial (papillary) cancers from those with high grade invasive cancers

1) Participate in a prevalidation study for methylation based detection of bladder cancer. 2) Collect voided urine specimens from patients with a) invasive carcinomas, b) non-invasive carcinomas, and c) patients with urologic diseases who are free of cancer, including patients with hematuria 3) Test the panel of three methylation markers described in the Preliminary DAta for their ability to identify individuals with bladder cancer and to differentiate between invasive and non-invasive cancers

There are currently no biomarkers annotated for this protocol.

No datasets are currently associated with this protocol.
