BACKGROUND Tuberculosis is an urgent public health problem caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. Many factors, including host genetic factors, are involved in tuberculosis pathogenesis. The SLC11A1 gene (formerly NRAMP1) is a primary candidate for association with tuberculosis susceptibility.

The study included 136 pediatric patients with tuberculosis and 435… CONTINUE READING
