Research progress on bladder cancer molecular genetics

J Cancer Res Ther. 2014 Nov;10 Suppl:C89-94. doi: 10.4103/0973-1482.145792.

Abstract

Bladder cancer is a common malignant urinary tumor with a high rate of recurrence and quick progression, which threats human health. With the research on bladder cancer molecular genetics, the knowledge of gene modification and the development of molecular detection methods, more tumor markers have been discovered, which may have potential for early diagnosis, clinical examination and prognosis. This article reviews the research progress on bladder cancer molecular genetics.
