About this book


The increasing incidence of bladder cancer in the United States and worldwide offers an excellent opportunity to better understand the biology of this cancer and to apply clinically relevant research in the treatment room. In Bladder Cancer: Current Diagnosis and Treatment, Michael J. Droller and a panel of experienced clinicians and researchers bring their strong background in clinical research to bear on the assessment and management of this important disease. Their comprehensive discussion summarizes the state-of-the-art in diagnosis and treatment, based on the latest understanding of bladder cancer's epidemiology, carcinogenesis, genetics, and tumor markers. Topics of particular interest include the role of genetics and molecular biology in evaluating bladder cancer clinically, the evaluation of the results of systemic treatment in advanced disease, the current status of tumor markers in bladder cancer, and the means for further study of their applicability.

Insightful and evidenced-based, Bladder Cancer: Current Diagnosis and Treatment provides active clinicians and clinical investigators with not only a critical survey of the rapidly expanding research in the area, but also a state-of-the-art tutorial on today's optimal assessment and treatment of bladder cancer.
