Antibody-mediated immunity has been historically considered to have no role in host-defense against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. In recent years, studies from our group as well as others have challenged this traditional thinking. Using monoclonal antibodies, researchers demonstrated that antibodies can modify various aspects of mycobacterial infection to the benefit of the host. A review of recent experimental evidence in support of a role for antibodies in host-defense against mycobacterial… CONTINUE READING
