Non-tuberculous mycobacteria have diverse effects on BCG efficacy against Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Abstract:

The efficacy of Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccination in protection against pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) is highly variable between populations. One possible explanation for this variability is increased exposure of certain populations to non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM).

The effects of administering live Mycob...
