abstract

  • These data suggest that intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guérin is safe in patients who have asymptomatic bacteriuria and the 2-year disease-free intervals are similar to those of uninfected patients. Such strategy facilitates the timely administration of bacillus Calmette-Guérin therapy and avoids the overuse of antibiotics.
