BCG is a long name that many of us only guess at the pronunciation (Bacillus Calmette-Guerin). But most people aren’t aware it has been part of Canadian medical history for decades, and how a Canadian was involved in its use as a cancer treatment.
In this podcast, hosted by Collin Whitehouse, the unique and exciting history of BCG is explained by Dr. Alexander Zlotta. Dr. Zlotta is a Professor in the Department of Surgery and Urology at University of Toronto, Director of UroOncology at Mount Sinai, associate editor at Frontiers in Oncology and the Bladder Cancer journal, and staff member in the Division of Surgical Oncology at the Princess Margaret Cancer Center. Dr. Zlotta is also joined by NMIBC patient Jonathan Peterson.
