Clinical Trials Using BCG Solution

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying BCG Solution. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.

NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.

Trials 1-5 of 5
  • Different Versions of BCG with or without Vaccine Therapy in Treating Patients with High Grade Bladder Cancer That Is Not Muscle Invasive

    This randomized phase III trial studies bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) Tokyo-172 strain solution with or without a vaccination, BCG Tokyo-172 strain vaccine, to see how well it works compared with BCG solution in treating patients with bladder cancer that has not spread to muscle. BCG is a weakened form of the bacterium Mycobacterium bovis that does not cause disease. BCG is used in a solution to stimulate the immune system in the treatment of bladder cancer. Giving different versions of BCG with vaccine therapy may prevent bladder cancer from returning.

  • Efficacy and Safety of Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in Combination With Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) in High-Risk Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer (HR NMIBC) (MK-3475-676 / KEYNOTE-676)

    This study is designed to assess the antitumor efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab in combination with BCG, compared to BCG monotherapy, in participants with HR NMIBC that is persistent or recurrent following adequate BCG induction. The primary hypothesis is that the combination of pembrolizumab plus BCG has a superior complete response rate (CRR) as assessed by central pathology review compared to BCG in participants with carcinoma in situ (CIS).

  • A Study of Intravesical BCG in Combination With ALT-803 in Patients With Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer

    This is a Phase Ib / IIb, randomized, two-cohort, open-label, multicenter study of intravesical ALT-803 plus BCG versus BCG alone, in BCG naïve patients with high-grade NMIBC.
    Location: 7 locations

  • Study of Sasanlimab (PF-06801591) in Combination With Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) in Participants With High-Risk Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer

    CREST: Combination of sasanlimab and alternative BCG Regimens to Evaluate outcomes with Subcutaneous anti-PD-1 Treatment Phase 3 Design with 3 study Arms (A, B and C). Arms A and B consists of two study drugs, PF-06801591 plus BCG. Arm C consists of one study drug, BCG. The study is designed to demonstrate that PF-06801591 plus Bacillus Calmette Guerin (BCG) (induction and maintenance periods) is superior to BCG alone (induction and maintenance periods) in prolonging event free survival (EFS) in participants with high-risk naïve non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) and to demonstrate that PF-06801591 plus BCG (induction period only) is superior to BCG alone (induction and maintenance periods) in prolonging EFS in participants with high-risk NMIBC.

  • Acupuncture for the Treatment of Intravesical BCG-Related Adverse Events in High-Risk Non-muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer

    This phase II trial studies the safety and feasibility of utilizing acupuncture in patients with high-risk bladder cancer that has not spread to the surrounding muscle (non-muscle invasive) undergoing treatment with intravesical BCG. BCG is a weakened form of the bacterium Mycobacterium bovis that does not cause disease. It is used in a solution to stimulate the immune system in the treatment of bladder cancer. Unfortunately, many patients experience side effects such as pelvic pain, painful urination, severe urgency, frequency, urge incontinence, need to urinate at night, and / or infectious complications. These side effects may cause patients to delay or stop BCG treatment. Acupuncture is a medical intervention in which fine metallic needles are inserted into anatomical locations of the body to stimulate the peripheral and the central nervous system. Giving acupuncture before each intravesical BCG treatment may help to reduce the side effects of intravesical BCG, and help patients complete treatment. Specific outcomes of interest include acceptability to patients, effect of acupuncture on intravesical BCG-related side effects, and adverse events associated with acupuncture.
