    A central tenet of tuberculosis pathogenesis is that caseous necrosis leads to extracellular matrix destruction and bacterial transmission. We reconsider the underlying mechanism of tuberculosis pathology and demonstrate that collagen destruction may be a critical initial event, causing caseous...

    Mycobacterium tuberculosis is endowed with the ability to persist within its intracellular niche for years, often tilting the balance of the host-pathogen interaction in its favour. The host resists infection by releasing damaging free radicals, pushing the pathogen towards lysosomal...

    We previously described a caspase-independent death induced in macrophages by a high intracellular burden of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). This death, with features of apoptosis and necrosis, releases viable bacilli for spreading infection. Interferon (IFN)-? promotes survival of macrophages...
