TheraCys, BCG Live (Intravesical) is a freeze-dried preparation made from the
Connaught strain of Bacillus Calmette and Guérin, which
is an attenuated strain of Mycobacterium bovis.
The BCG organisms in the product are grown on media containing potatoes, glycerine, asparagine, citric acid, potassium phosphate, magnesium sulfate, ferric ammonium citrate, calcium chloride, copper sulfate and zinc sulfate. Monosodium glutamate is added to the BCG organisms prior to freeze-drying.
Each vial of TheraCys contains 81 mg of freeze-dried BCG. Prior to use, each vial is reconstituted with the accompanying diluent (3 mL), which contains 0.85% w/v sodium chloride, 0.025% w/v polysorbate 80, 0.06% w/v sodium dihydrogen phosphate and 0.25% w/v disodium hydrogen phosphate. Neither the freeze-dried BCG nor the diluent contain preservative.
One dose of TheraCys consists of one 81mg vial of reconstituted material further diluted in 50 mL sterile, preservative-free saline.
The BCG organisms are viable upon reconstitution. In vitro potency is
determined by an assay of the number of colonies grown on solid medium. The
reconstituted product contains 10.5 ± 8.7 x 108 colony-forming units
(CFU) per vial when resuspended in the diluent provided.Last reviewed on RxList: 10/28/2008
