OBJECTIVE: To report the sensitivity and specificity of neural precursor cell-expressed developmentally down-regulated protein 9 (NEDD9) protein high expression in predicting BCG response and its effect on recurrence or progression free survivals. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between May 2014 and April 2017, a prospective cohort study was conducted on 105 patients with intermediate or high-risk nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer. Immunohistochemical staining with mouse monoclonal anti-NEDD9 antibody was done. Examination of the slides was done to detect NEDD9 cytoplasmic expression. Intravesical induction bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) instillation therapy was started for all patients 2 to 4 weeks after endoscopy with once weekly instillation for 6 weeks. Intravesical maintenance BCG instillation was then continued every 3 months for at least 1 year. Follow up with cystoscopy every 3 months for 2 years and every 6 months after that. RESULTS: The mean age ± SD of the patients was 57 ± 4.5 years. The median follow-up period was 25 (12-36) months. NEDD9 protein was highly expressed in 61 (58.1%) patients, whereas low expression was in 44 (41.9%) patients. Sensitivity and specificity of NEDD9 high expression in predicting recurrence were 83.6% and 64.2%, respectively. Its sensitivity and specificity in predicting progression to muscle invasion or distant metastases were 91.3% and 51.2%, respectively. Its sensitivity and specificity in predicting complete response to BCG therapy were 84.1% and 80.9%. Kaplan-Meier test showed highly significant difference (P<0.0001) in survival without recurrence or progression between patients showing high expression and those showing low expression. CONCLUSION: NEDD9 protein tissue marker could be used as a predictive marker for BCG response in nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer with reasonable sensitivity and specificity.

OBJECTIVE: To compare the distance between the colon and the trajectory of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) access both in prone and flank-free modified supine (FFMS) positions as measured on computed tomography and to study the effect of age, gender, BMI, side, and previous renal surgery as influencing factors. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this prospective study, we included 367 patients scheduled for PCNL. All patients underwent low dose abdominal computed tomography both in prone and FFMS positions. Patients <18 years and those with previous colonic surgery or renal congenital anomalies were excluded. The perpendicular distance between the imaginary line of the renal access and the colon was measured. Findings were correlated to different influencing factors. RESULTS: Two hundred nineteen patients were males, and 148 were females. BMI of <30 were reported in 158 patients whereas BMI >30 in 209 patients. Data analysis showed that the mean perpendicular distance between colon and the renal access in FFMS and prone positions were 35.92 ± 0.22 mm and 17.78 ± 0.09 mm, respectively. In prone position only obesity, age, and overall interaction effect were the significant factors on the studied distance. In FFMS position, in addition to the effect of the prior factors, previous renal surgery also significantly reduces this distance. CONCLUSION: The distance between the colon and assumed PCNL trajectory at a puncture on the posterior axillary line was influenced mainly by patient position. In FFMS position the colon appears to be farther than in prone position. BMI and age significantly influence this distance to a lesser extent.
