Intravesical BCG immunotherapy is used after transurethral resection (TUR) for the prevention of recurrence of NMIBC. BCG treatment is usually started a few weeks after TUR and is given once a week for 6 weeks. It stimulates immune responses that can destroy bladder cancer cells (acute and chronic induced inflammations) and as a consequence causes side effects. The investigators postulate that Xpert® test might be used to demonstrate the presence of residual (after TURB) or recurrent (during adjuvant treatment) disease at the time of intravesical treatment, which could be of very significant impact in the management of this complex situation.Urines of BCG treated patients are rich in immune system elements (cytokines, lymphocytes,…), this complex inflammatory milieu of urines may interfere with urinary biomarkers. This study will allow assessing the effect of the complex inflammatory milieu induced by BCG treatment in urines of patients with NMIBC on the Xpert® Bladder cancer assay.
