Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It represents a great honor to be a Guest Editor of the official journal of International Society of Men's Health. I sincerely hope I can contribute to the development and recognition of this Special Issue, entitled “New era in the treatment of Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer”.

Bladder cancer represents one of the most common urinary tract neoplasia, ranking second after prostate cancer. About 50% of the newly diagnosed tumors are low-grade malignancies and more than 70% are non-muscle invasive bladder cancers.

Trans-urethral resection of bladder tumor is one of the key procedures in the diagnosis and treatment of non-muscle invasive bladder. Although this cancer is non-muscle invasive, the risk of progression and recurrence is well documented.

In the new era of cancer treatment a great focus is pointed towards biomarkers with capability of predicting the grade, prognosis and evolution of these tumors. We would like to focus this special issue to identify reliable, largely accessible prognostic biomarkers and advances in the treatment on non-muscle invasive bladder cancer.

As many new inflammatory biomarkers emerge in the literature it is important that these are validated in large cohort, prospective, multicentric studies. The inflammatory response in the peri-tumoral region is not fully understood, as well as it’s impact on the cancer cells, I find this Special Issue a good opportunity in validating these data.

Your contribution is welcome in form of original article, case report, commentary and review. Joining and sharing our experience and information may contribute to a better treatment and life-expectancy of our patients.
