Unformatted text preview: 2 with deletion of 9p21 locus, 25 with aneuploidy for chromosomes 3, 7 and 17 and 2 with both clones. There were 2 false positive results between patients without bladder cancer, which indicate the specificity of 92%. Conclusion: Our results confirm high specificity and sensitivity of FISH in non- invasive bladder cancer detection espe- cially for high grade tumors. Detection of concrete chromosomal aberrations corre- lated with the grade of the tumor.

In the present study, we would like to elucidate the role of TGF- b in blad- der cancer cells. Methods: The cell viability was observed at 24, 48 and 72 hours after treatment of TGF- b in bladder cancer cell lines - 253J, 5637, T24 and J82 - using MTT assay. And then we neutralize the effect of TGF- b using pan-TGF- b antibody and observed cell growth pattern again. The cell was exposed to TGF- b and we extracted total RNA at 6h and 12h after exposure for mi- croarray analyses. The microarray analyses were carried out using 22K oligochips. Results: Of the bladder cancer cell lines, 253J and 5637 showed growth inhibition after TGF- b treatment. Other two bladder cancer cell lines, T24 and J82 seemed not to be affected by TGF- b treatment. Aftertreatment....
