Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the gene expression of MAGE-A3, MAGE-C2, NY-ESO-1, LAGE-1, WT1 and PRAME antigens in pathologically demonstrated bladder cancer. [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]

Enrollment: 156
Study Start Date: January 2008
Study Completion Date: January 2008
Primary Completion Date: January 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Cancer Group Other: Data acquisition and analysis
Tumor tissue samples submitted for analysis together with a form containing clinical data previously collected and archived from patients with bladder cancer.

Detailed Description:

There will be no procedure(s) or treatment(s) carried out on patients. All data and samples will be taken from those already stored at the investigation sites. Clinical data collected will include patient demographics (age, gender), Tumor, Node, Metastasis (staging system) [TNM stage], and histopathologic description only. Strict anonymity of patient data will be maintained.

This retrospective study is based upon the analysis of archived formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue samples and patient-related data already available at the investigational site.


Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Previously collected samples and data of patients with pathologically demonstrated bladder cancer.

Inclusion Criteria:

For inclusion of a tissue sample, all of the following criteria must be met:

  • The patient had pathologically proven bladder cancer (any stage).
  • All the data required are available from patient's records.

There are no restrictions regarding operative technique (cystectomy or cystoscopy).

- Many patients may no longer be alive, or no longer be in contact with the investigation sites. Thus, patients will not be required to give their informed consent before inclusion in the study.
