Funding Approved For Pilot Analysis Of Bladder Carcinogens In The Urine Of Young Adult E-Cigarettes Users

A recently approved funding proposal through NC TraCS and NYU to characterize carcinogenic biomarkers found in the urine of young adult e-cigarette users will soon be underway. The proposal put together by UNC Urologist Dr. Marc Bjurlin, Dr. Ilona Jaspers, and Dr. Terry Gordon hopes to not only better understand the types of bladder cancer-causing biomarkers in e-cigarette user urine, but also strengthen the foundation for future e-cigarette research and regulations.
