OBJECTIVE To compare the immunological status of normal and peritumoral bladder walls, and to characterize immunocompetent cells before and during intravesical instillations of bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG). PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-three patients with superficial urothelial bladder carcinoma (stages pTa to pT1, grades 1-3) were treated with six weekly instillations of 150 mg of BCG (Pasteur strain). Biopsies of cystoscopically normal bladder wall were taken before, 3 weeks and 3 months… CONTINUE READING
