|Abstract: ||Oral immunization of healthy adults with 107 CFU BCG Moreau Rio de Janeiro was well tolerated and
significantly boosted gamma interferon responses to purified protein derivative, Ag85, and MPB70 from
previous childhood intradermal BCG immunization. Oral BCG offers the possibility of a needle-free tuberculosis
vaccine and of boosting the protective immunity from intradermal tuberculosis vaccines.|
