The gene MK167 (proliferation marker antigen identified by the monoclonal antibody Ki-67) and the antiapoptosis gene survivin are promising prognostic markers, because increased MKI67 and survivin mRNA concentrations indicate short recurrence-free periods (1-4).
To confirm our previous findings regarding survivin and to investigate the recurrence-predictive value of MKI67 mRNA, we collected 95 bladder washings from a new cohort of 75 patients undergoing transurethral resection (TUR).
We next measured survivin and MKI67 mRNA expression in the 57 bladder washings.
