Eligibility Criteria

Age 18+ · All Participants · 10 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
A tumor that started in the cells that line the bladder and has spread to the muscles around the bladder is called muscle-invasive urothelial carcinoma
We have a set of 20 slides, each stained for 10 microns, that were taken from a diagnostic TUR specimen
A bladder tumor measuring 5 centimeters or less in size based on the observations by surgeons during a cystoscopy
This means that the patient must meet certain qualifications in order to be registered.
The patient is a good candidate for radical cystectomy surgery, as assessed by the surgeon.
No multifocal carcinoma in situ; a single focus is allowed.
No prior treatment with anti-PD-1 or anti PD-L1 antibodies, systemic chemotherapy, or BCG therapy in the past 5 years
is required No radiation therapy is required to the bladder or prostate prior to treatment.
No evidence of locally advanced or metastatic disease.
You have a clinical stage T2-T4aN0/xM0 disease.
