Enrollment: 174
Study Start Date: November 2009
Study Completion Date: August 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
The FISH test detect chromosomal aberrations in urine specimens from persons with hematuria suspected of having bladder cancerous using the UroVysion® Bladder Cancer Kit (UroVysion Kit) which is FDA approved. This kit is designed to detect aneuploidy for chromosomes 3, 7, 17, and loss of the 9p21 locus. Results from the UroVysion Kit are intended for use, in conjunction with and not in lieu of current standard diagnostic procedures, as an aid for initial diagnosis of bladder carcinoma in patients with hematuria and subsequent monitoring for tumor recurrence in patients previously diagnosed with bladder cancer.

Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
patients with hematuria that are suspected in having bladder carcinoma, and in patients previously diagnosed with bladder cancer.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Well stained slides with bright FISH signals

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Very old slides that were already bleached
