We compared intravesical instillations with mitomycin-C (MMC), Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) Tice, and BCG-RIVM in patients with pTa-pT1 papillary carcinoma and primary carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the bladder. Nine instillations with MMC were given or 6 weekly instillations with BCG. Early recurrences were treated with additional instillations. For toxicity(More)
After transurethral resection (TUR) of superficial bladder tumors, intravesical instillations with BCG are successfully used to lower the recurrence rate. The mechanism of the antitumor activity of BCG is not completely understood. After TUR, a fibrin clot is formed on the damaged urothelium. Fibronectin (FN) is part of the clot. It has been demonstrated(More)
The rat renal cell carcinoma system as described by deVere White and Olsson in 1980 is used widely as a model for its human counterpart. The tumor arose spontaneously in a male Wistar Lewis rat and its behaviour has been shown to be stable during multiple passages. We have compared this tumor with the human renal cell carcinoma using a multidisciplinary(More)
Since 1976 superficial bladder cancer is treated with intravesical instillations of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG). The results with BCG are superior to other intravesical chemotherapeutics, both in superficial tumors and carcinoma in situ. BCG probably acts as a nonspecific potentiator of the immune system. Comparative studies have to give information(More)
