H-8577: Genetic Susceptibility to Bladder Cancer: A Molecular Epidemiology Approach
Bladder cancer is an ideal disease system for evaluating the relationship of the genetic make-up of persons susceptible to bladder cancer to tobacco, dietary, and work-related exposures (which are responsible for up to 90 percent of BCs). This is a clinical research study whose purpose is to identify genetic and lifestyle factors which increase a person's risk of developing specific cancer.
