with BCG. He treated them with other kinds of immunotherapeutic agents,
including PPD and DCNB. But it was the first international conference
that I know on BCG in relation to therapy of cancer.
Sol Rosenthal, who's an expert on BCG for TB, tuberculosis,
in Chicago was there, and he showed that in Chicago when they vaccinated
children against TB in one district, where the children were vaccinated,
the incidence of leukemia was let's say one child out of 50,000, and
in a neighboring district where they were unvaccinated, there
were something like seven times as many children who developed leukemia.
So he feels that BCG exercises an Immune surveillance against children
having, developing leukemia. He feels -- also, there's been a
Public Health study in Canada of children who were given BCG, and
they too have shown that there's less leukemia in the children that
have been treated.

Your sister must be very interested.
