Changes that may modify the capacity of macrophages to control mycobacterial growth could favour the reactivation of bacillary proliferation within protective granulomas developed in response to mycobacterial infection. There is increasing evidence that diesel exhaust particles (DEPs) could suppress some macrophage functions, but it is not known whether… CONTINUE READING
