The aim of this project is to evaluate the association between topical immunostatus/systemic inflammation and the risk of BCG refractory non-muscle invasive disease and metastatic muscle invasive disease. The immunohistochemical staining analysis of tumor tissue specimes with FOXP3 (Treg maker) and CD204 (TAM marker) antibodies revealed that high counts of Treg and TAM were associated with shorter recurrence-free survival and disease-free survival. The time-couse analysis of urine obtained from patients treated with intravesical BCG demonstarted that the expression of T cell makers including FOXP3 was increased with time. On the otherhand, B cell-related antigens showed much less chage compared to T cell-related antigens. We will accumulate the patients number.
