ABLADE: Advanced bladder cancer laser diagnostics and therapy

Bladder cancer is one of the most common forms of the disease and one of the hardest to spot. This Europe-wide project coordinated by the University of Dundee will examine whether advanced laser techniques can be used to detect and treat the disease. “There is a notable difference in the behaviour of cancerous cells and healthy ones when exposed to particular laser wavelengths,” said Dr Nabi, senior clinical lecturer in surgical uro-oncology at Dundee. “In theory, we can first identify cancer cells and then kill them with certain wavelengths without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue. If we can develop this kind of laser diagnosis and treatment, we could have a much more effective and minimally invasive technique.”
