Bladder cancer has trailed behind other malignancies in the routine application of molecular diagnostics. Whilst urine cytology has a high specificity for high grade lesions, the more common low grade lesions are reliant on cystoscopy for diagnosis and follow up. Any biomarkers that increase the yield of low (and high) grade lesions would increase in the interval between cystoscopies and focus clinical management of those patients most at risk from progressive bladder cancer. It is time to shortlist some of the most promising candidates in this long-running race for the best biomarker. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles and communications.
