    Abstract

    Tuberculosis (TB) is still one of the major health problems worldwide. The only TB vaccine currently available is an attenuated strain of Mycobacterium bovis, bacille Calmette Guerin (BCG). However, the efficacy of BCG vaccine continues to be debated. Tuberkulosis (TB) merupakan salah satu penyakit utama di dunia. Satu-satunya vaksin TB yang terdapat pada masa ini ialah strain yang telah dilemahkan iaitu, Mycobacterium bovis bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG). Bagaimanapun, keberkesanan BCG masih diperdebatkan. Oleh itu, vaksin yang lebih efektif terhadap TB sangat diperlukan.
