Case description

There is a time point with cellular genome destabilisation, observed in the course of carcinogenesis process. Aneuploidies 3, 7 and 17, as well as the loss of 9p21 are among the most frequent events, observed in the course of genome destabilisation (included in the UroVysion Bladder Cancer Kit). During 5 years, we carried out 512 UroVysion tests; 68% of examined patients were referred for diagnostics of urinary bladder cancer, 8.4% for therapeutic effect follow up, 2% for dysuria, 2.7% for haematuria, 0.5% for chronic, recurrent cystitis, 1.4% for other indications and 13.1% for no precise indications.
