A study found familial clustering of urothelial cancers, with increased risk of bladder cancer and others, in first- and second-degree relatives of these patients.
The immune checkpoint inhibitor avelumab showed promising antitumor activity and a manageable toxicity profile in patients with platinum-refractory metastatic urothelial carcinoma, according to a new analysis.
Clinical Decision Making in Surveillance of Non–Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer: The Evolving Roles of Urinary Cytology and Molecular Markers
In this article, we discuss the requirements for development and validation of urine markers and the factors that hamper their clinical implementation. We also review current surveillance guidelines for NMIBC and provide an overview of approved urine markers for the detection and surveillance of NMIBC.
Researchers have discovered that testicular cancer’s responsiveness to conventional chemotherapy is likely determined during prenatal development.
Researchers found that combining palonosetron, aprepitant, and dexamethasone represents an effective and well-tolerated treatment to prevent CINV in testicular cancer patients receiving cisplatin.
A post-hoc analysis found that brain metastases are more frequent in patients with advanced germ cell tumors who have received dose-dense chemotherapy compared with those administered the BEP regimen.
Treatment with crizotinib resulted in objective responses in patients with advanced papillary renal cell carcinoma type 1 with MET mutations or amplification.
In a small phase II study of 12 men with nonseminoma germ cell tumors refractory to cisplatin, pembrolizumab did not demonstrate clinical activity.
Researchers analyzed a large population-based sample of men from Sweden and discovered an association between heavy cannabis use and testicular cancer incidence.
In this interview we discuss results of the HYBRID trial, which tested a hypofractionated regimen of 36 Gy over six fractions in elderly muscle-invasive bladder cancer patients who were ineligible for standard treatments.
