Among these are also p15 (INK4B/MTS2) which together with p16 can inhibit the phosphorylation of the retinoblastoma protein (RB), thereby inhibiting the cell cycle. Loss of either of these genes may have profound implications on the cell cycle and result in uncontrolled growth and tumor formation. The loss of p16, often accompanied by p15 loss is a very frequent occurrence in bladder 36 Theodorescu and See cancer, occurring in up to 40% of cases (70). 1).

CLINICAL BIOLOGY AND NATURAL HISTORY Histologic Types of Bladder Cancer Neoplasms involving the urinary bladder encompass a spectrum of histologic types (2). Any of the cellular elements composing the bladder wall and its lining can undergo malignant transformation. Furthermore, specific elements may de-differentiate into more primitive phenotypes under the influence of specific etiologic factors. In order of prevalence, the histologic variants comprising bladder neoplasms are transitional, squamous cell, adenocarcinoma, and finally sarcoma.
