Bladder Cancer Diagnostic Test


Non-invasive urine test for MCM5 to aid bladder cancer diagnosis.


ADXBLADDER can be used to detect minichromosome maintenance protein 5 (MCM5) in human urine to aid detection of bladder cancer in patients presenting with haematuria and/or recurrent lower urinary tract symptoms with a suspicion of malignancy.


ADXBLADDER Patient_Pathway

Bladder cancer is traditionally diagnosed using cystoscopy. Tumour morphology (small flat lesions) and location (uretic orifices, in ureters and folds of the bladder) can make identification by cystoscopy difficult, using ADXBLADDER as an adjunct test can aid diagnosis of cancers that may otherwise not be identified during routine investigations.
