Discomfort and local toxicity often cause interruption of intravesical adjuvant therapy for non muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). A marker of urothelial damage could be helpful for early detection and monitoring of topical toxicity to ameliorate the tolerability of the intrravesical therapy. The aim of the study is to investigate the correlation between the gene expression of Fibronectin (FN) in bladder washings and local toxicity of adjuvant intravesical therapy.
