Background: Bladder cancer is one of the most common malignancies. Advances have been made in diagnosis, therapy, and surveillance resulting in increasing survival rates of patients, but the search for more effective therapies is imperative to be continued. Among others, lectin-mediated targeting might be a promising concept. Thus, the potential of fluorescein-labeled plant lectins was investigated using 5637 cells as a model for human urinary carcinoma [1] and SV-HUC-1 cells as a model for non-tumorigenic human uroepithelial cells.
