The cross-species mycobacterial growth inhibition assay (MGIA) project 2010-2014
The development of a functional biomarker assay in the tuberculosis (TB) field would be widely recognized as a major advance in efforts to efficiently develop and test novel TB vaccine candidates. We present preliminary studies using mycobacterial growth inhibition assays (MGIAs) to detect a BCG vaccine response across species, and extend this work to determine if a standardized MGIA can be applied in characterizing new generation TB vaccines. The comparative MGIA studies reviewed here aimed ...Expand abstract
