Abstract

Patients with recurrent superficial bladder tumors have been treated by vesical and intradermal administration of Bacillus Calmette-Guerin. The pattern of recurrence in 9 patients has been altered favorably. Although the findings are still preliminary they appear to hold promise of a new therapeutic approach to the treatment of a group of neoplasms for which effective therapy is still lacking.
