AbstractThe Cancer Genome Atlas project introduced genomic taxonomy of basal and luminal molecular subtypes in muscle invasive bladder cancer. Fewer studies have addressed the molecular classification in non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). Our aim is to assess the applicability of the proposed phenotypic classification for NMIBC. Three TMAs were constructed from 193 TURBT specimens of 60 bladder cancer patients treated at one of the authors ’ institutions (1998–2008). Follow-up data on recurrence, grade, or stage progression was obtained. Immunohistochemistry was performed using an automated Ventana Sys...

Lynch Syndrome (LS) entails a defective DNA mismatch repair system, which is the post-replicative proofreading and editing system, ensuring our genome's integrity. LS predisposes to several cancers, most commonly colorectal and endometrial cancers. LS occurs in approximately 1 in 250 –1,000 people.LS is associated with urological malignancies with upper tract urothelial carcinoma the most common, although still clinically underestimated. Other urologic malignancies possibly associated with LS include bladder, prostate, testis, and renal cell carcinoma.

CONCLUSION: The multimodal treatment consisted of a maximal TUR-BT followed by RT; concomitant platinum-based chemotherapy combined with RHT in patients with high-grade bladder cancer improves local control, bladder-preservation rate, and OS. It offers a promising alternative to surgical therapies like radical cystectomy. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: Radical cystectomy with appropriate lymph node dissection has long represented the standard of care for muscle-invasive bladder cancer in medically fit patients, despite many centers reporting excellent long-term results for bladder preserving strategies. This retrospective...

Abstract OBJECTIVES: We studied the effect of conditional survival on 5-year cancer-specific mortality (CSM) probability in a contemporary North-American population-based nonmetastatic urothelial carcinoma of urinary bladder cohort treated with radical cystectomy. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Within the SEER database (2004-2015), we identified pTa/pTis/pT1N0 high grade, pT2 to pT4N0 and pTanyN1-3 patients treated with radical cystectomy for nonmetastatic urothelial carcinoma of urinary bladder. Conditional 5-year CSM-free estimates were assessed after event-free follow-up duration. Multivariable Cox regression mode...

Narula, Alan Prem Kumar, Gautam Sethi, Kwang Seok AhnAbstractOxymatrine (OMT) is a quinolizidine alkaloid derived from the roots of the Sophora genus plants. It has been widely used as a treatment for chronic hepatitis infections and inflammatory diseases due to its effective immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties. Recently, the potential anti-cancer effects of OMT have been actively studied in various ca...
