The impact of age on the response of patients with superficial bladder cancer to intravesical immunotherapy

, : The impact of age on the response of patients with superficial bladder cancer to intravesical immunotherapy. Journal of Urology 175(5): 1634-9; Discussion 1639-40

Purpose: We determined the influence of age on response to intravesical. immunotherapy in patients with superficial bladder cancer.Materials and Methods: Data from a national phase II multicenter trial for BCG plus IFN-alpha intravesical therapy for superficial bladder cancer were analyzed. Recurrence-free survival 2 years after the initiation of therapy was examined in patients by incremental age decade.

The influence of water content on the nitrogen processes in the soil is analysed with a model, NINIT. The model uses a mechanical approach to describe microbial growth, mineralisation of organic nitrogen, root uptake and leaching. Hydrologic drivi...
