We are investigating whether a new urine test called UroMark can detect bladder cancer in patients who are being investigated for haematuria (blood in the urine).
UroMark is currently in the development stage and early results indicate that it can detect bladder cancer with a high degree of certainty. The test detects changes in the DNA of cells which are present in urine. Changes in DNA, called mutations or epigenetic alterations, are present in cells collected from a urine sample if cancer is present. We would like to understand if the UroMark test can detect bladder cancer.
