Bacillus Calmette Guerin

Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) is an attenuated strain of Mycobacterium bovis. Bacillus Calmette-Guerin can provide a 60% improvement rate compared with 27% with placebo.51 The mechanism of action is unclear, but it is suggested that BCG may stimulate type 1 T helper cell response, leading to a decrease in inflammatory cells and decreased type 2 T helper cell-mediated allergic response. Nitric oxide levels are found decreased in IC patients and increases are found with symptom improvement. Bacillus Calmette-Guerin seems to increase urinary nitric oxide level in bladder cancer patients. In oncology literature, BCG adverse effects may include irritative voiding symptoms, gross hematuria, and development of bladder inflammatory granuloma.
