Methylation & Proteomics-Based Detection of Bladder Cancer

BLADDER-PRE-VAL
226

To determine sensitivity and specificity of quantitative real-time methylation specific PCR (qMSP) of urine sediment DNA, using a panel of several methylated gene markers, in detecting bladder cancer in participants pathologically confirmed to have this disease. Secondary objective: to test the sensitivity and specificity of an Aurora A FISH probe for the detection of clinically evident bladder cancer.

This study will test the sensitivity of gene methylation in the presence of clinically evident, pathologically confirmed bladder cancer. This study will test the specificity of gene methylation in two groups of participants without bladder cancer - requiring cystoscopy for hematuria and for foreign body (urinary stones, stents, and catheters) or infection.
