Abstract :

Giving patients with bladder cancer chemotherapy followed by surgery may improve their outcome, according to a study of 307 patients. Patients who received this combined treatment survived an average of six years whereas those treated with surgery only survived an average of four years. The chemotherapy included methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin, and cisplatin.
