An abstract discussing the results of a study performed by researchers at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, USA, has been accepted by the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) for presentation at their annual conference in March 2018.
Researchers from Johns Hopkins said the study, which commenced in July 2016, is based on results from a cohort of 500 patients undergoing investigation for bladder cancer by urine cytology and/or cystoscopy. Testing for the presence of hTERT in urothelial cells was performed on all 500 patients, and the results correlated with findings of the other tests.
The USCAP annual conference will be held in Vancouver, Canada from March 17 – 23, 2018. USCAP describes the meeting as the largest and most influential meeting of pathologists in the world. It is attended by over 5,000 pathologists from almost 90 countries.
