Objective: A growing body of evidence suggests that vaccinations play a role in the normal maturation of the immune system and in both the development and balance of immune regulatory pathways that can impact health later in life. This study aimed to evaluate the effects of Bacillus Calmette-Guerin ( BCG) vaccine on the hyperoxia-induced neonatal rat lung injury.
