BCG research is part of the burgeoning science oi immunology. Ihc study of the way the body fights off foreign invaders. It is one of the main avenues of cancer research, along wilh such approaches as the search for viruses as causes and Ihe possibility of developing a vaccine. The scientists involved fn all this research agree that any answers arc a long way off and caution against raising hopes prematurely. The BCG meeting, lo be held Del. 5-6 al the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Md., will be the first devoted solely to lhat subject. About 80 scientists will attend. Attention was focused on RCG on Saturday with a report from !he Atomic Entrny Com- mission's Oak Ridge National a'lory of BCG's successful use in eradicating lumors in laboratory animals. The most dramatic report so far came last May from Dr. Edmund Klein of Roswell Park Memorial Institute, in Buffalo, N.Y., who said he had successfully treated wilh irnrmmolherapy five advanced cases of breast cancer in humans. The five cases, he said, were all in varying degrees of remission or slate of arrest.
