IFNγ-Independent Control of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Infection in Rhesus Macaques


Daniel Barber, PhD, Senior Investigator in the Laboratory of Parasitic Diseases at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases


IFNγ is often considered the primary effector molecule responsible for T cell-mediated host-defense against M. tuberculosis infection.  Here we examine the effects of IFNγ blockade on lung granuloma immune responses and bacterial control in infected rhesus macaques.

Host: Chyung-Ru Wang, Professor, Dept. of Microbiology-Immunology
