This volume presents state-of-the-art research from the various disciplines that define the leading edges of bladder research. The latest developments are presented, as well as an analysis of current research, new tactics for unresolved problems, critical evaluations of current theories, together with the development of new theories and approaches as needed. The volume is divided into five sections: Epithelial-Mesenchymal Interactions in the Bladder; Muscle and Extracellular Matrix in the Bladder; Nerves and Pharmacology in the Bladder; Infection, Immunology, and Interstitial Cystitis in the Bladder; and Cancer of the Bladder.
