BACKGROUND Infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) results in different clinical outcomes ranging from asymptomatic containment to rapidly progressing tuberculosis (TB). The mechanisms controlling TB progression in immunologically-competent hosts remain unclear. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS To address these mechanisms, we analyzed TB progression(More)
Background: Infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) results in different clinical outcomes ranging from asymptomatic containment to rapidly progressing tuberculosis (TB). The mechanisms controlling TB progression in immunologically-competent hosts remain unclear.
The EPR signal recorded in reaction medium containing L-lysine and methylglyoxal is supposed to come from the anion radical (semidione) of methylglyoxal and cation radical of methylglyoxal dialkylimine. These free radical inter-mediates might be formed as a result of electron transfer from dialkylimine to methylglyoxal. The EPR signal was observed in a(More)
Mice of the genetically TB-susceptible strain I/St were infected with ∼100 CFU of Mycobacterium tuberculosis strain H37Rv, and after week 3 post-infection treated by inhalations of the NBD peptide selectively blocking NF-κB activation pathway. This therapy resulted in a pronounced attenuation of lung pathology and down-regulation of the expression of(More)
