Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG), a live attenuated strain of Mycobacterium bovis, is currently the only agent approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for primary therapy of carcinoma in situ (CIS; see image below) of the bladder. BCG replaced cystectomy as the treatment of choice for CIS in the mid-1980s. BCG therapy also reduces the risk of recurrence, and ongoing maintenance therapy with BCG reduces the risk of progression in patients with high-grade non–muscle invasive bladder cancer
