  1. Cell mediated immune responses in BCG vaccinated children.

    Article - En anglais

    The immunological status of BCG vaccinated and unvaccinated healthy children was evaluated to assess the efficacy of BCG.

    The duration of immunity conferred by the vaccine was also investigated.

    Of the 326 children studied, 170 (52%) had the BCG scar and only 24 (14%) showed a positive Mantoux response.

    Among the univaccinated group, 14 of 156 (9%) showed a positive response.

    All cases had normal proportions of T and B cells in the peripheral blood.

    The mean values of the leukocyte migration inhibition (LMI) test with PHA were also normal.
