Abstract / Description:Summary Points
* Many new and diverse tuberculosis vaccines are currently under development.
* The ability to compare clinical immunogenicity between different candidates would be an important asset.
* The World Health Organization (WHO) Initiative for Vaccine Research sponsored three meetings of experts to discuss assay harmonization for new tuberculosis vaccine trials.
* We describe advantages and disadvantages of multiple T cell assay approaches and make specific recommendations for phase I/IIa trials. These include introducing a single and simple harmonised assay for all trials.
