Bladder cancer model could pave the way for better drug efficacy studies

In the journal Cancer Research, UNC Lineberger’s William Y. Kim, MD, Benjamin G. Vincent, MD, and colleagues reported they have developed a mouse model of luminal bladder cancer, one of the two subtypes of advanced bladder cancer.
