Objective: High levels of endonuclease III-like 1 (NTHL1) DNA glycosylase, which plays a role in the first step of the base excision repair pathway, has been related to cancer initiation and progression. 5-hydroxyuracil (5-OHU) oxidative base damage is a substrate for NTHL1 and endonuclease VIII-like 1 enzyme 1 (NEIL1) DNA glycosylases. This study investigates the association of 5-OHU incision activity with the risk of disease progression in patients with non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) regarding grade and stage.
