Muscle-invasive and non-muscle invasive bladder cancers arise from different stem cells
A CU Cancer Center study published today in the journal Stem Cells shows that progenitor cells that create dangerous, muscle-invasive bladder cancer are different than the progenitor cells that create non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. Though these two cancers grow at the same site, they are different diseases. (2013-12-17)

Invisible blood in urine may indicate bladder cancer
Scientists at the University of Exeter Medical School found that one in 60 people over the age of 60 who had invisible blood in their urine -- identified by their GP testing their urine -- transpired to have bladder cancer. The figure was around half those who had visible blood in their urine -- the best known indicator of bladder cancer. However, it was still higher than figures for other potential symptoms of bladder cancer that warrant further investigation. (2014-08-31)

Clue to switch of bladder cancer from locally contained to invasive found by Jefferson scientists
Bladder cancer often becomes aggressive and spreads in patients despite treatment, but now researchers at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson have identified a protein they believe is involved in pushing tumors to become invasive -- and deadly. (2010-05-14)

Radiation does not improve survival for rare, invasive bladder cancer
In the largest study to date of a rare and deadly form of bladder cancer, researchers at Henry Ford Hospital found radiation therapy may not improve a patient's chances for survival. While overall survival for adenocarcinoma of the bladder was poor, the study revealed several factors that may improve a patient's prognosis, including being diagnosed at age 60 or younger, and having cystectomy, a procedure that either removes all or a portion of the bladder. (2010-06-02)

Researchers at Duke University Medical Center may have a new way to stop and even prevent the urinary tract infections that plague more than a third of all adults, some of them repeatedly. (2009-08-20)

Bladder cancer recurrence and mortality could decline with better treatment compliance
This is the first study to examine the natural history of bladder cancer from a population standpoint, revealing that the burden of bladder cancer on the population is greater than thought, and, more intense surveillance and treatment according to guidelines in the first two years after diagnosis could reduce recurrence and mortality of the disease. (2013-06-04)

Jefferson scientists show protein key to bladder cancer spread, potential drug target
By demonstrating that a protein -- a growth factor called proepithelin -- plays a crucial role in the spread of bladder cancer, scientists may have identified a potential target for new drugs. They have shown that proepithelin promotes migration and invasion -- two crucial steps leading to metastasis -- suggesting that it could be critical for a cancer to go from a noninvasive to an invasive disease. In some cases, proepithelin might be a marker for bladder cancer. (2006-07-15)

Blocking PLK-1 to beat bladder cancer
Novel therapeutic approaches are needed to treat bladder cancer. In a JCI study researchers use small interfering RNA (siRNA) to silence polo like kinase-1 (PLK-1) to protect against bladder cancer in mice. PLK-1 regulates cell division and its expression is correlated with a variety of human tumors. The PLK-1 inhibitor reduced cell proliferation and killed cancer cells. This study shows that therapy to inhibit expression of PLK-1 could be an important strategy for the management of bladder cancer. (2005-03-10)

Smoking intensity and cancer markers predict seriousness of bladder cancer
Smoking not only causes bladder cancer--it also affects its course, in that people who smoke more have greater likelihood of developing more aggressive and deadly disease. That is one of the conclusions of a new study published early online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society. The study also found that a panel of bladder cancer markers can predict which particular cases are at the highest risk for a fatal outcome. (2013-01-14)

Like prostate cancer, bladder cancer patients may benefit from anti-androgen therapy
Bladder cancer patients whose tumors express high levels of the protein CD24 have worse prognoses than patients with lower CD24. A University of Colorado Cancer Center study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that CD24 expression may depend on androgens - and that anti-androgen therapies like those currently used to treat prostate cancer may benefit bladder cancer patients. (2012-09-24)
