Corynebacterium parvum versus BCG adjuvant immunotherapy in human malignant melanoma.


One-hundred and sixteen patients with Stage I and Stage II malignant melanoma were randomized to treatment with either Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) (Tice) or subcutaneous Corynebacterium parvum (Burroughs-Wellcome). Life table analysis failed to reveal a difference between these two forms of treatment in 68 Stage I patients. The relapse rate was significantly reduced in Stage II patients treated with C. parvum.
