A strategy to improve the efficacy of vaccination against tuberculosis and leprosy.

Abstract

The pathogens responsible for leprosy, tuberculosis and the leishmaniases can induce different classes of immunity, but protection is provided only by a cell-mediated response. Here, Peter Bretscher proposes a strategy to achieve an immunological imprint that ensures a stable cell-mediated response upon natural infection.
