The immune system consists of molecules and cells (and their products) to keep the Body free of afflictions. Clinical problems arise as and when there is failure or inadequate immunological response. How can the immune system be fortified against an undesirable infection? This is done by making of a vaccine against that infection. This article describes the development of a Vaccine against Leprosy. Most of us (>90%) are immune to this disease. The few, who become victims to leprosy, manifest pitiable symptoms. Interestingly this vaccine has found multiple applications. It is a potent invigorator of immune responses.
