Tuberculosis BCG vaccination

Mycobacterium bovis BCG is widely used as a vaccine against tuberculosis (TB) despite its variable protective efficacy Relatively little is known about the immune response profiles following BCG vaccination in relation to protection against TB Here we tested whether BCG vaccination results in immune responses to DosR (Rv3133c) regulon-encoded proteins After BCG-iv vaccination BCG reached the BM where it was detected up to 7 months post vaccination (Figure 1A ) The number of BCGs in the BM directly correlated with the expansion of the HSC progenitor lineage − c-Kit + Sca-1 + (LKS +) population ( Figure 1 B)

Intranasal Administration of Mycobacterium bovis BCG

Despite the widespread use of Mycobacterium bovis BCG the only licensed vaccine against tuberculosis (TB) TB remains a global epidemic To assess whether more direct targeting of the lung mucosa by respiratory immunization would enhance the potency and longevity of BCG-induced anti-TB protective immunity the long-term impact of intranasal (i n ) BCG vaccination was compared to

BCG vaccination is a valuable method in the control of tuberculosis and is outstandingly applicable in developing countries where the disease attacks mainly children and young adults From sample surveys in various population groups in Kenya the author estimated that some 80% of all new cases of tuberculosis developing each year derive from persons infected within the preceding year and the
