Reagents, Immunoassay, Tumor Marker, Urinary Bladder, Cytokeratin 8/18 Fragment
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically urine) to determine fragments of cytokeratins 8 and 18 secreted by neoplastic urinary bladder tumor cells (i.e., cancer antigens). These reagents are used in assays known as urinary bladder cancer (UBC) antigen determination assays to obtain information on tumor grade and clinical stage of urothelial carcinomas of the bladder.
