New biomonitoring methodologies to measure DNA adducts in urinary cells


Tobacco smoking and the consumption of well-done cooked meats are considered risk factors for bladder cancer. However, exactly how these exposures contribute to bladder cancer is still mostly unknown. The purpose of this pilot study is to evaluate the potential of urine to serve as a biospecimen for the analysis of cancer biomarkers. Participants will be asked to collect their urine from when they first wake up until 6 hours afterward.

I'm interested
