This is a continuation of a discussion that I am moving over from the "Maintenance BCG thread."

It began this way:

from Patricia

I decided to do my own research on Dr. Herr's research and this is what I have found...I hope to look more into the statistics of other researchers when I have more time. The following does seem to QUALIFY that Dr. Herr's statement above is based on BCG "failure" in Superficial disease.

In the same link provided above, directly under Dr. Herr's report is a report from Dr. O'Donnell concerning the bladder sparing protocol of BCG + Interferon
as an option upon and after intial BCG "failure" for Superficial disease.

HI Ro.......just read this today in Uro today from Dr. Herr at MSK...don't know how many centers are using this Narrow Band Imaging technique but it does seem superior to white light.

Rosemary,

Thats is also what I see when I read abstracts. Failure of the BCG along with how long since a recurrence seems to be the theme on taking the next step. Which I hope none of us have to do but, will do if I have to. I have delevd into ASCO & Journal of Urology for a lot of ingo. Anyone can go in a s a guest or researcher.

Here is one other stat site: www.urotoday.com/37/browse_categories/bladder_cancer/bladder_preserving_strategies_for_muscleinvasive_bladder_cancer__abstract.html

See ASCO: gucancers.asco.org/CancerPortals/Genitourinary+Cancers/Page+Not+Found

See Journal: www.jurology.com/article/PIIS0022534705667936/fulltext

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.
