For many decades, the dominant view in the field of mycobacterial immunology has been that host defense against relies exclusively on cell-mediated immunity. In search of new solutions to the overwhelming problem of tuberculosis, investigators set out several years ago to evaluate the help that can be offered by antibody-mediated immunity in host defense against , with the possibility that it may lead to the development of a novel and effective vaccine strategy. The literature on studies of antibody-mediated immunity against can be divided into several general categories: serological studies, passive antibody studies, animal studies, in vitro studies, and human studies. Monoclonal antibody (MAb) technology, described for the first time in the 1970s, allowed the selection of individual antibodies with particular antigen specificities. Vaccines presently used in humans belong to one of three main categories: inactivated, live attenuated, and subunit vaccines. Adhesion of microbes to host tissues is a significant step in the colonization of the host and the establishment of infection. The majority of these vaccines are thought to provide protection by eliciting protective antibody responses. The progress made in recent years is encouraging and should stimulate interest in evaluating the mechanisms by which antibodies may contribute to host defense against . The future challenges are to systematically dissect the conditions required for optimal antibody-mediated immunity against and to develop vaccine candidates that will work by eliciting protective antibody responses.
