dc.description.abstract The existing Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine offers some protection against TB, but its efficacy varies for unknown reasons. In order to develop an effective vaccine, a comprehensive understanding of protective immunity in adults and children is needed. Studies involving host-pathogen interactions are complex and have been hampered by the slow growth of mycobacterial organisms. en_ZA
