Abstract: BCG is the only vaccine presently available against tuberculosis but it is estimated to prevent only 5% of the all potentially vaccine-preventable deaths due to Tuberculosis. Keeping these in view the present study has been undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of BCG and the effect of repeat dose of BCG on antimycobacterial humoral response in mouse model. To improve BCG immunogenicity, specific anti-mycobacterial immune responses (anti-BCG titre and total IgG level) were evaluated in mouse model using boost immunization protocols with the BCG vaccine. Mice induced with a repeat dose of BCG showed an increased anti mycobacterial humoral response, which gradually declined few weeks after single dose of BCG administration. The results suggest improved efficacy of BCG vaccine by giving repeat dose of BCG that can enhance the level of immunoprotection against tuberculosis as opposed to a single BCG dose.
