Urothelial dysplasia and inflammation induced by Schistosoma haematobium total antigen instillation in mice normal urothelium



Urothelial dysplasia and inflammation induced by Schistosoma haematobium total antigen instillation in mice normal urothelium



Urologic Oncology 29(6): 809-814



Squamous cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder has been associated with Schistosoma haematobium infection in many parts of Africa. The epidemiologic association is based on case control studies and on the close correlation of urinary bladder cancer incidence with prevalence of S. haematobium infection within different geographic areas. A parasite-tumor linkage is further suggested by the predominance of squamous cell (as opposed to transitional cell) morphology of bladder carcinomas seen in S. haematobium-endemic areas. The cellular mechanisms linking S. haematobium infection with cancer formation are not yet defined. In the present study, we hypothesized that the parasite antigens might induce alterations in urothelium. We investigated the effects of S. haematobium total antigen in CD-1 mice normal bladders after intravesical administration of the parasite antigens. The bladders were analyzed histopathologically 20 and 40 weeks after treatment. Intravesical instillation of S. haematobium total antigens induces the development of urothelial dysplasia and inflammation. In our work, we demonstrate for the first time that S. haematobium antigens are the direct cause of alterations in urothelium.
