Antiretroviral agents restore Mycobacterium-specific T-cell immune responses and facilitate controlling a fatal tuberculosis-like disease in Macaques coinfected with simian immunodeficiency virus and Mycobacterium bovis BCG.

Abstract

The contribution of immune reconstitution following antiretroviral treatment to the prevention or treatment of human immunodeficiency virus-related primary or reactivation tuberculosis remains unknown. Macaque models of simian immunodeficiency virus-Mycobacterium bovis BCG (SIV/BCG) coinfection were employed to determine the extent to which anti… (More)
