> Bladder EpiCheck, one of the main characters in XXIV ACUC meeting
Bladder EpiCheck™, one of the main characters in the "XXIV Jornada de l’Associació Catalana d’Uròlegs de Comarques”.
Dr. Pont (Chief of Urology in Hospital Sant Joan de Reus), presented the hospital experience results of his own hospital with Bladder EpiCheck™ in “XXIV Jornada de l’Associació Catalana d’Uròlegs de Comarques” in Manresa during the past 18th May.
Bladder EpiCheck™ experience, the only Epigenetics test for the monitorization of Bladder Cancer patients with a negative predictive value over 99%, was shared project between Urology and Pathology Departments. The results were really successful and they highlight a cost-effective solution in order to reduce the number of cystoscopies.
According to Dr. Pont own words: “Bladder EpiCheck is a helpful tool for the following-up of high grade tumours, reducing the number of cystoscopies and cytologies, which is more cost-effective for the urologist and the health care system, and improving the quality of life of patients”.
