Genetic profile predicts which bladder cancer patients will benefit from early chemotherapy

Three genetic changes can predict whether a patient will benefit from chemotherapy before surgery to remove bladder cancer, according to new findings presented by Fox Chase Cancer Center researchers during the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

During the study, 36 patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer received chemotherapy before surgery,… Genetic profile predicts which bladder cancer patients will benefit from early chemotherapy
