Abstract

Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) provides a unique model of cancer recurrence and progression. Sequential tumours (n = 100) from 57 patients with an index pTa or pT1 TCC were studied using fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH), to determine aberrations of chromosomes 1 and 8. Thirty-seven patients experienced recurrences; eleven developed muscle invasive tumours (pT2+). Polysomy of chromosomes I or 8 was associated with pT1 TCC (P = 0.0017 and P = 0.0037, respectively), but not with recurrence. Progression was associated with polysomy of chromosomes I (P = 0.003) and 8 (P = 0.011) in pTa/pT1 recurrences, but not with stage. In conclusion, patients who subsequently developed invasive TCC (pT2+) had significantly higher rates of ancusomy (90%) in their superficial cancers than those patients who did not progress (P = 0.009). Investigation of sequential tumours in patients with recurrent and progressive TCC showed that polysomy of chromosomes I and 8 were linked to subsequent detrusor muscle invasion, but not recurrence per se.
