Cell-mediated immune responses to mycobacterial antigens in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis and HIV infection.

Abstract

Lymphocyte proliferation and cytokine responses induced by a panel of mycobacterial antigens were compared in Portuguese donors with pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) with or without HIV co-infection, HIV+ patients and healthy Mantoux-positive controls. Control donors showed stronger proliferative responses than any of the patient groups, with secreted antigens… (More)
