For sure in Nijmegan, and probably at NKI/Amsterdam and Erasmus in Rotterdam though I'm not sure about the last two. You should ask!

Hello,

Does anybody know in what Hospitals in Holland they perform cystoscopie with the Hexvix/blue light methode?

Thanx

Hi Pat,
From my understanding--I don't have access to the J of U (but almost all the articles are free in the month of Feb), haven't seen the whole article but I would think that means the other 71% of pts did not have more tumors found by using additional blue light to the white light cystoscopy.

You think?

"A comparative study between GE Healthcare's Hexvix® fluorescence cystoscopy and white light cystoscopy has shown that Hexvix® cystoscopy is more effective in the detection of Ta and T1 papillary lesions than white light1 cystoscopy alone in 29% patients. The study has been published in this month's Journal of Urology issue."

We've already seen that it's usefulness in detecting CIS is confirmed ( http://blcwebcafe.org/hexvix.asp ), now this phase III trial reported by American experts is claiming it's effectiveness at diagnosing more papillary tumors.

Very interesting.

I would think there is enough data now to get this tool approved for use in the US.
