  • Bladder Cell Research for Urine Marker Test

    I just received the latest IC Newsletter from Oklahoma University in OK City, and there is a short blurb on bladder cell research that I thought I'd share with everyone:

    Bladder Cell Research at OU Health Science
    Dr. Culkin wants the readers to know that IC basic science research is progressing. IC cells and DNA groups are being grown in tissue cultures with the hope of developing a urine test for detection of IC and also to monitor treatments success. A huge thanks to all who have donated tissue for this research. Also, we are grateful to the researchers who are making this a priority. We are very grateful.
