Immunotherapy with Bacteria Regression of neoplastic disease in patients with acute bacterial infections suggests that some bacteria produce substances which affect the growth of cancer cells. In 1893, W. B. Coley reported on the treatment of cancer patients with bacterial products and noted that tumour regressions were produced. The therapy was most effective when the substances were injected directly into the tumours. Despite these early reports, very little research was done in this area until 1965 when Villasor reported on the use of bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) in combination with chemotherapy in patients with advanced cancer.

As neoadjuvant therapy. Preclinical experiments have shown that chemotherapy is more effective in microscopic disease in animal models. The theoretical explanation for this is better vascularisation and drug access, a higher proportion of cells in cycle which makes them more vulnerable to chemotherapy, and a lower probability of the development of drug-resistant cell mutations, which are estimated to occur at a frequency of one per million cells in the human (Goldie and Coldman 1984). However, the clinical usefulness of adjuvant chemotherapy, in addition to radical treatment of the primary tumour with surgery and radiotherapy, appears to be much more limited than could be expected on the basis of preclinical observations.
