Read about all of them. Seems to be less cystitis with Epirubicin.

I haven't heard of it but I just looked it up.

Here is an article:
http://www.jurology.com/article/S0022-5347(07)02346-4/abstract

Conclusions
We confirmed the results of previous studies showing that 8.5 patients must be treated with a single instillation to prevent 1 recurrence. Furthermore, our data may indicate that only small recurrences are prevented, which could easily be fulgurated using local anesthesia at followup cystoscopy. The benefit of single instillations can be questioned if this finding is confirmed by others.


Here is a another that says it has 50% effectiveness: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8335049

And this one is really good: Full article
