This is an advanced reference and clinical text documenting the latest advances and current knowledge on all aspects of diagnosing and treating renal, bladder and prostate cancer. It contains 33 original, new chapters by high-level experts in urology, oncology, endocrinology, immunohematology, and pathology from leading medical centres in the United States and Europe. Their contributions provide essential updates on today's most intensely researched and debated issues in renal, bladder and prostate cancer. These include molecular genetics, organ-sparing surgery, tumour nephrectomy, metastatic renal cell carcinomas, gene therapy, optimal strategies for early detection, accuracy of grading, avoiding aggressive treatment when unneeded, advances in radiotherapy, minimal invasive treatment alternatives, endocrine treatment, androgen monotherapy, quality of life issues, new approaches to drug development, intravesical chemotherapy, adjuvant therapy, urinary cytokines as predictors, bladder preservation, orthotropic urinary diversion, systemic treatment, and contemporary approaches for chemotherapy.


  • Molecular genetics of renal cell carcinoma
  • organ-sparing surgery -magic bullet or tragic insanity? transabdominal or retroperitoneal approaches for tumour nephrectomy - an easy choice? surgery for metastatic renal cell carcinoma - a mater of attitude? interferons in metastatic renal cell carcinoma - a tradition to be kept? interleukin-2 in renal cell carcinoma
  • gene therapeutic approaches for renal cell carcinoma - has the future arrived? CTL priming versus CTL tolerance induction, a delicate balancing act involving dendritic cells
  • prostate cancer in Japan - what are the differences? decreasing prostrate cancer mortality in the United States
  • is the value of screening already proven? an update of renal bladder and prostate cancer
  • what is the optimal strategy for early detection of prostrate caner? how many biopsies should be taken for proper diagnosis and grading? accuracy of grading - can it be replaced by other prognostic tissue factors? present and future
  • is cure of prostrate cancer possible int hose for whom it is necessary? can aggressive treatment be avoided in those who may not need it? advances in radiotherapy of localized prostate cancer
  • minimal invasive treatment alternatives for localized prostrate cancer using thermal therapy or cryosurgery
  • endocrine treatment of prostrate cancer - the future after maximum androgen blockade and the role of PSA monitoring
  • androgen monotherapy
  • quality of life in prostate caner - preliminary results of two studies in patients with extensive disease
  • intermittent endocrine therapy for prostate cancer
  • new approaches to drug development in prostate cancer
  • can intravesical chemotherapy prevent progression of superficial bladder cancer? is intravesical BCG superior to chemotherapy? how long should adjuvant BCG be given? urinary cytokines after intravesical immunotherapy - are they predictors? is bladder preservation possible in transitional carcinoma T1G3? orthotropic urinary diversion in TCC - are there limits? the place for systemic treatment in invasive bladder carcinoma
  • gene therapy in metastatic transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder
  • contemporary approaches for chemotherapy of metastatic urothelial cancer.
