Genetic Susceptibility to Bladder Cancer

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:1st Feb 2009
This clinical research study will identify biologic and lifestyle factors which increase a person's risk of developing specific cancer. We propose to conduct a case-control study examining interindividual differences in susceptibility to tobacco carcinogenesis as predictors of bladder cancer risk. We will measure susceptibility to tobacco carcinogenesis and this will include studies of the genetic modulation of carcinogen activation and detoxification and of chromosome sensitivity to tobacco mutagens.
