An Update on the Immunology of Tuberculosis
TLDR
While microevolutionary variation is the principal factor affecting the transmission dynamics and relative fitness of antibioticresistant strains, the large genetic diversity with significant phenotypic differences across its biogeographic population structure raises the possibility, for example via recombination following human migration, of new virulent strains emerging.
COMPUTATIONAL TARGET IDENTIFICATION OF PEPTIDOGLYCON METABOLIC PATHWAY PROTEIN OF MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS 826
TLDR
The crystal structure of the Mtb L,D-transpeptidase Ldt(Mt2) containing a bound peptidoglycan fragment provides information about catalytic site organization as well as substrate recognition by the enzyme.
CLINICAL AND BIOLOGICAL PROFILE OF MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS (MTB) - A REVIEW Review Article
TLDR
The aim of present article is to provide in depth knowledge about Mycobacterium tuberculosis and to study entire clinical and biological profile of Myc Cobacterium TB.
Pediatric laryngeal tuberculosis: A case with significant diagnostic challenges
TLDR
This case serves to reinforce the difficulty inherent in making the diagnosis of laryngeal tuberculosis, and the need to maintain a high level of clinical suspicion for uncommon presentations of the disease.
The concomitent infection with mycobacterium and AIDS - a health problem for immunodepressed patients.
TLDR
Seven of this children presented concomitent, different forms of tuberculosis caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, hospitalised in the Clinical Hospital of Ftiziology Diseases from Oradea.
