Beschrijving
Over the last 15 years, bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) has emerged as one of the most effective therapies in the treatment of superficial bladder cancer. At a satellite symposium to the 22nd Congress of the Societe Internationale d'Urologie, an international panel of experts met to discuss their experience of BCG immunotherapy in the treatment of superficial bladder cancer. For the first time, European and American trial data has been reviewed in the same meeting and new treatment schedules have been suggested in the light of this data. Current theories on the mechanisms of action of BCG have been presented as well as developmental prospects for BCG that may be expected over the next few years. Urologists and oncologists will appreciate this thorough overview of the state-of-the-art of BCG immunotherapy for superficial bladder cancer.
