Background: Adenocarcinoma (ADA) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) are rare and often aggressive histologic subtypes of bladder cancer. For advanced disease, no clear standard therapies exist and NCCN guidelines suggest only fluorouracil, cisplatin, paclitaxel and ifosfamide as possible options. Thus, novel therapies based on underlying tumor biology are needed. The purpose of this study was to identify potential targets and therapeutic options for these histologic subtypes, utilizing multiplatform tumor profiling.
