URO17® Bladder Cancer Biomarker

URO17 detects the expression of the protein cytokeratin 17, which occurs prior to the changes required for detection by both cytology and FISH, enabling the assay to detect both low and high-grade disease.

Who Benefits from URO17® testing?

Patients with any of the following:

  • Gross or microscopic hematuria
  • History of urothelial carcinoma
  • History of treatment for urothelial carcinoma

Why use URO17®?

 

URO17 is one of few tests that can identify low-grade bladder cancer. TruCore pathologists can use URO17 as a safeguard between urine cytology and FISH testing so that unneeded testing doesn’t occur.

If URO17 is negative, bladder cancer is not present, saving patients money from running further unnecessary diagnostic testing.

Studies and White Papers

"Before working with TruCore, I would sometimes have questions regarding the reliability of results of more specalized testing such as cytology.

...

I trust the results I receive from TruCore, which minimizes unnecessary cost, inconvenience, and risk to patients."
