The proliferation rate of explanted bladder epithelial cells from patients with IC in serum-free medium was significantly less than that of control cells, indicating an intrinsic abnormality in IC cell proliferation. This abnormality may be caused by APF, which induces reversible inhibition of heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor production and normal bladder epithelial cell proliferation.
