NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- A $528,000 grant has been awarded to University of Oklahoma researchers who are exploring a new treatment for bladder cancer.
The Research Scholar Grant was awarded by the American Cancer Society to Dr. Youngjae (yung-JEE) You, associate professor at the OU College of Pharmacy's Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
You says that bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer in men and the most expensive cancer to treat because current treatment requires frequent, follow-up exams.
You says the best way to reduce bladder cancer recurrence is sensitive detection and complete eradication at an early stage. You said that if successful, OU's research would result in the development of improved options for the diagnosis and treatment of non-muscle, invasive bladder cancers.
