Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Occurrence of dose limiting toxicity [ Time Frame: From study start up to Day 56. ]
  • Occurrence of serious adverse events [ Time Frame: During the entire study period. ]
  • Occurrence of adverse events [ Time Frame: At each visit ]
  • Laboratory measurements of serum chemistry and hematology [ Time Frame: At study start, prior to each vaccination and 1 and 6 months after dose 3 ]
  • Resting vital signs (blood pressure, pulse, temperature) [ Time Frame: At study start, prior to each vaccination and 1 and 6 months after dose 3 ]
  • Chest X-ray findings [ Time Frame: At study start and study end ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of T cell and antibody responses to the fusion protein and to each of the three Mycobacterium tuberculosis antigen domains. [ Time Frame: Prior to each vaccination and 1 and 6 months after dose 3 ]
  • Evaluation of PPD skin reactivity [ Time Frame: At study start and study end ]

Enrollment: 12
Study Start Date: January 2004
Primary Completion Date: December 2004 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
