Analysis of PBMC from 10 week old infants vaccinated with BCG at birth. During follow-up 26 infants developed tuberculosis (TB) (non-protected by BCG) and 20 infants did not develop TB despite documented exposure (protected by BCG). PBMC were stimulated with media only or reconstituted BCG for 4 and 12 hours. Results provide insight into the mechanisms behind the failure of BCG to protect against disease.
