    To analysis the difference between systemic and local pleural T cell response in pulmonary tuberculosis, we analyzed interferon (IFN)-g and soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R) in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) culture supernatants and in pleural effusion (PE). We also investigated...

    Subpopulation structure of regulatory T cells and T helpers of peripheral blood in patients with newly diagnosed pulmonary tuberculosis depending on the clinical form of disease and sensitivity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis to antituberculosis drugs has been analyzed in this work. It has been...

    Objective: T-lymphocyte and natural killer T (NKT) cells have an important role in viral and other intracellular infections. In the present study, it was aimed to investigate whether a difference of T and NKT cells ratio between active and inactive pulmonary tuberculosis (PT) patients. Material...

    We studied possible mechanisms of immunosuppression mediated by regulatory T cells that promotes suppression of antigen-specific immune response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis and eosinophilia. It was shown that the number of CD4CD25Foxp3 regulatory T cells...

    Neutrophils contain antimicrobial peptides with antituberculous activity, but their contribution to immune resistance to tuberculosis (TB) infection has not been previously investigated to our knowledge. We determined differential white cell counts in peripheral blood of 189 adults who had come...

    Background: NK cells express several specialized receptors through which they recognize and discriminate virally-infected/ tumor cells efficiently from healthy cells and kill them. This ability to lyse is regulated by an array of inhibitory or activating receptors. The present study investigated...

    About 10% of people infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis develop active tuberculosis (TB), and Th1 effector cells and Th1 cytokines play key roles in controlling M. tuberculosis infection. Here, we hypothesise that this susceptibility to M. tuberculosis infection is linked to increased T...
