Objectives: This study was planned to evaluate the feasibility of the assay of leukocyte arylsulfatase-A (AS-A) activity, and some urinary cytokine levels (tumor necrosis factor-alpha [TNF-alpha] and interleukin-8 [IL-8]), as noninvasive diagnostic tools in different stages of bladder cancer patients.
