Objectives

Our objectives are as follows:

  • To assess the effect of lifestyle factors (such as smoking, dietary habits, fluid intake and environmental exposures) on the recurrence and progression of bladder cancer.
  • To study health related quality of life and its association with recurrence and progression of bladder cancer.
  • To establish a bladder cancer tissue bank (that will comprise blood, urine, and bladder tissue).
  • To study the predictive effect of molecular markers on the recurrence and progression of bladder cancer.
  • To investigate whether selenium and/or vitamin E supplementation reduces the risk of recurrence and progression in patients with non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer.
