Thirty-three patients with advanced prostate cancer were prospectively randomized to receive either Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) adjuvant immunotherapy plus conventional therapy or conventional therapy alone. Conventional therapy consisted of estrogens or observation. There was a statistically significantly (p<0.05) longer survival in the 16 BCG-treated patients (42 weeks) than in the 17 control patients (29 weeks).
