I finally have been able to find the results of a phase 3 clinical trial that offers an alternative to BCG. It is still in it's infancy but, it looks like a doctor at MD Anderson is also looking to add it to their protocols. So, those involved with the BCG shortage, relapses or failures should soon have another option.
