abstract

  • Survivin expression improves our accuracy for prediction of cancer recurrence and survival in pT(1-3)N(0)M(0) patients by a small but statistically significant margin. Our findings support the need for further evaluation of survivin and its signaling pathways as well as survivin-targeted therapies in bladder cancer.
