Applications of array technology: identification of molecular targets in bladder cancer

Br J Cancer. 2003 Dec 15;89(12):2172-7. doi: 10.1038/sj.bjc.6601406.


High-throughput microarrays are being used in expression profiling analyses with the objectives of gene and pathway discovery, functional characterization of genes, and tumor subclassification. This review summarizes bladder cancer studies dealing with both in vitro models and clinical specimens, using distinct microarray platforms for target discovery.
