 Robotic surgery appears to be as effective as open surgery in treating bladder cancerRobotic surgery appears to be as effective as open surgery in treating bladder cancer
 
The first comprehensive study comparing the outcomes of robotic surgery to those of traditional open surgery in any organ has found that the surgeries are equally effective in treating bladder cancer.
 
   New test predicts whether bladder cancer will become invasiveNew test predicts whether bladder cancer will become invasive
 
A new study led by researchers from Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington has shown that a simple, new diagnostic test helps predict whether early stage bladder cancer will become invasive.
 
   Olfactory receptor in human bladder might prove useful for bladder cancer therapy, diagnosisOlfactory receptor in human bladder might prove useful for bladder cancer therapy, diagnosis
 
Researchers from Bochum have detected an olfactory receptor in the human bladder that might prove useful for bladder cancer therapy and diagnosis. Using cell culture studies, the team headed by Prof Dr Dr Dr habil Hanns Hatt and Dr Lea Weber demonstrated that the receptor occurs more frequently in bladder cancer tissue than in healthy bladder tissue.
 
 New biomarker paves way for personalized bladder cancer treatments
 
New biomarker paves way for personalized bladder cancer treatmentsResearchers from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine have identified a potential new target for the treatment of a particularly aggressive form of bladder cancer. MicroRNAs are small non-coding pieces of genetic material that are involved in the regulation of gene expression.
 
 
 Mount Sinai study identifies potential new treatment target for aggressive bladder cancer
 
Mount Sinai study identifies potential new treatment target for aggressive bladder cancerA potential new target for treatment has been identified in an aggressive form of bladder cancer, Mount Sinai researchers report.
 
 
 Blood test could identify bladder cancer patients who may not benefit from immunotherapy
 
Blood test could identify bladder cancer patients who may not benefit from immunotherapyPatients who are unlikely to benefit from a commonly used immunotherapy for bladder cancer could be identified by a simple blood test, according to researchers at Brighton and Sussex Medical School.
 
 
 Bladder Cancer Biomarkers
 
Bladder Cancer BiomarkersTo date, there have been more than 80,000 cases of bladder cancer in the US. The best way of boosting the prognosis of patients is through early intervention, which can be achieved through the identification of bladder cancer biomarkers.
 
 
 Bladder Cancer Histopathology
 
Bladder Cancer HistopathologyHistopathology provides a vast amount of valuable information about bladder cancer, such as the type, stage and grade of the cancer. This enables doctors to assess patient prognosis, best treatment options and possible specific therapies.
 
 
 Endoscopic Imaging for Bladder Cancer
 
Endoscopic Imaging for Bladder CancerEndoscopy (or endoscopic imaging) is the internal visualisation of an organ using a camera encapsulated within a long, flexible tube. Endoscopy of the bladder, more commonly referred to as cystoscopy, is the gold standard for detection and monitoring bladder cancer.
 
 
 Thromboembolism in Bladder Cancer
 
Thromboembolism in Bladder CancerBladder cancer is initiated when the cells of the bladder lining begin to grow uncontrollably, forming a tumor. This tumor then continues to grow, entering the muscle and the blood stream, eventually metastasising to other organs in the body.
 
 
 Non-Invasive Diagnostic Strategies for Bladder Cancer
 
Non-Invasive Diagnostic Strategies for Bladder CancerThere are many techniques which are used to diagnose and monitor bladder cancer, but the most common are highly invasive. These techniques cause anxiety for the patient and can impact how early the cancer can be detected. Since early diagnosis is key for boosting patient prognosis, several non-invasive techniques have been suggested as possible alternatives to these traditional methods.
 
 
 Bladder Cancer Genomics
 
Bladder Cancer GenomicsBladder cancer develops most commonly in the urothelial lining of the bladder. According GLOBOCAN database 2012, it is the 9th most common type of cancer worldwide, with 430,000 newly diagnosed cases in 2012.
 
 
 Bladder Cancer Risk Factors
 
Bladder Cancer Risk FactorsBladder cancer mostly develops in the urothelium that forms the inner lining of the urinary bladder. Other rare forms of this cancer include squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma.
 
 
 Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer (MIBC) Diagnosis and Treatment
 
Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer (MIBC) Diagnosis and TreatmentMuscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) is a type of transitional cell carcinoma that originates from the urothelium and gradually invades the detrusor muscle of the urinary bladder.
 
 
 Scientists create organoids that could help guide bladder cancer treatment
 
Scientists create organoids that could help guide bladder cancer treatmentResearchers have created patient-specific bladder cancer organoids that imitate many of the features of real tumors and may therefore be used to study how cancer evolves.
