Protective efficacy of neonatal Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccination against tuberculosis.
This matched case-control study was performed in two hospitals in Bangkok to evaluate the protective efficacy of neonatal Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccination in Thai children and to find factors that might explain the reported variation in estimates of the protective efficacy of BCG.
Cases were defined as children 3 months to 14 years of age who had tuberculosis and controls consisted of one to four children who were born in the same year and had the same district of residence as the case.
