Given the role of cell-mediated immune responses in resistance to mycobacteria, we sought to analyse whether there was a relationship between the severity of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and(More)
Earlier studies in patients with pulmonary TB have revealed a higher production of Th1 cell type cytokines in moderate TB, with predominant Th2-like responses in advanced disease. Given the influence(More)
BACKGROUND The major protective immune response against intracellular bacteria, such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, is a cell-mediated immunity involving neutrophils (PMNs) and peripheral mononuclear(More)
Our study investigated whether the respiratory burst (RB) of polymorphonuclear neutrophils from tuberculosis (TB) patients was related with the disease severity or treatment, as well as the(More)
