New discovery gives tuberculosis vaccine a shot in the arm
Date:2/26/2009

ne third of the world's population is infected with the tuberculosis, with nearly 9 million people getting sick with the disease each year. Of those 9 million, almost 2 million die. The disease can spread through the air, and it usually affects the lungs. Without treatment, tuberculosis is fatal. The BCG vaccine for tuberculosis is used in many countries, but not generally recommended in the United States. The vaccine is not completely effective in preventing tuberculosis, making it imperative for scientists to find ways to improve its efficacy.
