Show Summary Details


Information derived from the complete genome sequence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis makes it possible to develop a range of new vaccine candidates. Strategies currently under investigation include construction of whole cell live attenuated mycobacterial vaccines, as well as the use of individual antigens delivered by a variety of subunit vaccination procedures. Fundamental questions associated with the rational design, preclinical testing, and future application of new tuberculosis vaccines are reviewed.
