Necrosis of host cells and survival of pathogens following iron overload in an in vitro model of co-infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Abstract

Mycobacterium tuberculosis, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and iron overload (dietary/hereditary) are very common in sub-Saharan Africa. The requirement for iron as a crucial factor for cellular processes is well established, as are the disadvantages of excess iron in the system. Mycobacterium tuberculosis and HIV are believed to have a reciprocal… (More)
