Mycobacterium bovis Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is a live attenuated vaccine for the prevention of tuberculosis. Transcriptome comparison reveals dysregulated expression of two genes, Rv1774 and Rv1775, exclusively in the Pasteur strain of BCG. We show that these genes form a bicistronic operon regulated by Rv1773, a transcriptional repressor deleted during ...

BACKGROUND: Repeat BCG vaccination is standard practice in many countries for prevention of tuberculosis and leprosy, but its effectiveness has not been evaluated. The addition of Mycobacterium leprae antigens to BCG might improve its effectiveness against leprosy. A double-blind, randomised, controlled trial to evaluate both these procedures was carried out ...

If BCG must replicate well in vivo to immunize, presumably mainly in macrophages, the potency of BCG vaccines in human subjects might be measurable as the ability of the BCG to replicate in cultured human macrophages. We used this assumption to compare 6 different batches of lyophilized BCG with freshly ...

Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG), an attenuated vaccine derived from Mycobacterium bovis, is the current vaccine of choice against tuberculosis (TB). Despite its protection against active TB in children, BCG has failed to protect adults against TB infection and active disease development, especially in developing countries where the disease is endemic. Currently, ...

Novel tuberculosis vaccination strategies hinge on BCG priming, yet newborn BCG vaccination may cause BCG disease in HIV-infected infants. Viral-vectored or subunit prime vaccine, followed by delayed BCG boost only for HIV-uninfected infants, may be a safe alternative for all newborns, regardless of maternal HIV infection. This approach should be ...
