OBJECTIVE To study the association of anergic pulmonary tuberculosis with Vδ2(+) T cells and related cytokine levels. METHODS 82 pulmonary tuberculosis patients were divided into two groups according to their purified protein derivative tuberculin skin test (TST) results: 39 with TST-negative anergic pulmonary tuberculosis and 43 with TST-positive pulmonary tuberculosis, while 40 healthy volunteers were used as control. Based on chest X-ray results, the tuberculosis lesions were scored… CONTINUE READING
