Abstract

The initial tumors of 21 patients who earlier had presented with superficial noninvasive transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder and who subsequently underwent cystectomy for invasive disease were examined by the specific red cell adherence test. Eighteen of 21 initial tumors (85.7%) were antigen negative. The time from initial tumor resection ranged from twelve to 168 months (mean thirty-eight months). Loss of blood group antigens indicated enhanced biologic aggressiveness of tumors. However the interval to invasion is sufficiently variable as to preclude the use of this assay for timing of radical cystectomy.
