Cytotoxic cellular responses are crucial for clearing intracellular pathogens and generating host resistance. Experimental pulmonary tuberculosis is associated with an early delay in T cell responses and with elevated lung bacterial burden during chronic infection. In this study we quantified the in vivo cytotoxicity and the mycobacterial burden from two(More)
To ascertain the in vivo role of mycobacterial lipids phthiocerol dimycocerosates (PDIM) in experimental murine tuberculosis (Tb), airways infection was used to compare the parental virulent clinical isolate MT103 with its mutant fadD26, lacking PDIM. Lungs were assessed as the Tb-target organ and mediastinal lymph nodes as the corresponding lymphoid(More)
