We describe a simplified Mycobacterial Growth Inhibition Assay (MGIA) for pre-clinical assessment of vaccine-mediated protection in mice. The assay is accomplished by directly infecting splenocytes from vaccinated mice with Mycobacterium tuberculosis and quantifying mycobacteria using Mycobacterial Growth Indicator Tubes (MGIT). Vaccine-mediated immunogenicity detected by this assay correlated with protection.
