The pendulum swung several times in the ensuing years. In the 1950s, Melicow, and Kaplan clearly demonstrated associated areas of dysplasia and pre-neoplasia in the urothelium intervening between sites of frank neoplasia (80,81). However subsequent work by McDonald showed that urothelial malignancies could be implanted into and grow on sites of urothelial trauma even given relatively crude immunosuppression and understanding of transplant rejection in that era (84). These observations were later expanded on by Soloway and the specific mechanisms involved in tumor implantation delineated by See (85,88,89).

It is now believed that there may be six or more independent mutational events (11,12) necessary for carcinogenesis. Furthermore, 30 Theodorescu and See Fig. 1.
