Training the Immune System = BCG??

2 years 11 months ago #50270 by Alan
Makes sense to me, especially as BCG is a similar situation. Another treatment it that may or may not hit the market next year is bacterial based-MCNA. I have read similar studies in the dermatology/melanoma field. Logically, the immune system should be back viruses, bacterial infections and cancers if it is stromg or not compromised.

Thanks for sharing.

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

That's a great and informative article. I've been asked several times how and when immunotherapy started, and now I can answer that question.

Thanks so much for sharing!
