DCEG researchers conduct studies on bladder cancer. Most bladder cancers are transitional cell carcinomas. Other types include squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma, which result from chronic irritation and inflammation. Selected studies include:
Studies of water contaminants thought to be associated with cancer risk, including arsenic, disinfection byproducts, and nitrate.
A large interdisciplinary case-control study of bladder cancer in 18 hospitals from five different regions in Spain
A population-based case-control study that investigates the reason for the persistent excess of bladder cancer mortality and incidence in the northern New England area.
