I have made several significant advances this year but probably the most significant is that we have constructed a new strain of the BCG vaccine that can be used alongside cheap and effective diagnostic skin tests It is hoped that the availability of the new vaccine and compatible diagnostics will allow vaccination of cattle to protect against TB, something that is currently banned because of interference with the skin test.
