Earlier work showed that complete regression of 6- to 7-day-old tumors could be obtained in about 60% of cases by inoculation of the tumors with live BCG or certain fractions of BCG attached to minute oil droplets and suspended in Tween-saline. One of the most essential fractions was P3, a nonsensitizing, nonantigenic trehalose mycolate related to, but not identical with, cord factor… CONTINUE READING
