Title
(EN) DETECTING BLADDER CANCER BY TELOMERASE ACTIVITY
(FR) DETECTION DU CANCER DE LA VESSIE AU MOYEN DE L'ACTIVITE DE LA TELOMERASE
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to a method for detecting bladder cancer cells in a urine sample collected from a subject, comprising measuring telomerase activity, wherein an increase in telomerase activity bears a positive correlation with the presence of bladder cancer cells in the sample.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de détection de cellules cancéreuses de la vessie dans un échantillon d'urine recueillie auprès d'un sujet, qui consiste à mesurer le niveau d'activité de la télomérase, une augmentation de ce niveau ayant une corrélation positive avec la présence de cellules cancéreuses de la vessie dans l'échantillon.
