Surgical, medical and radiation oncology experts at Johns Hopkins work together as a team to coordinate care for bladder cancer patients.
They continue ground-breaking research and clinical trials to improve detection and treatment.
Screening and Detection
Micro satellite urinary sediment (MAUS) testing development consists of a urine test which will screen for either early detection or recurrence of bladder cancer
Recent efforts in bladder cancer research have focused on finding the molecular origins of the disease. This important research conducted in the laboratory of Bladder Cancer Research member and University Professor, Dr. David Sidransky, has focused on understanding the relationship between genetic alterations in the bladder cancer cell and a tumor's ability to recur and progress.
Industrial monitoring program is a cancer detection program that uses the micro-satellite urine test to monitor individuals who have been occupationally exposed to chemicals that are linked to bladder cancer.
