Intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) therapy is a standard treatment for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, but some patients experience side effects that lead to treatment discontinuation. Local side effects are typically mild, while systemic side effects can be severe and life-threatening. BCG therapy has immunotherapy effects on bladder cancer, but the mechanism is not fully understood. Due to its effect on the immune system, patients may also develop rare autoimmune complications, such as neuropathy...

INTRODUCTION: Recurrent miscarriage is defined as 2 or more failed clinical pregnancies, typically known as repeated pregnancy loss, occurring before 20 gestational weeks, and further categorized into primary and secondary types. It represents a common and distressing condition to deal with in the field of reproductive medicine, usually affecting <5% of couples, with up to 50% of cases lacking a clearly defined aetiology. The epidemiology also varies depending on maternal age. Remarkably, the situation significantly afflicts expecting parents, whereas maternal factors, such as age and previous pregnancy loss rate, are commonly reported as risk factors...
