New gene mutation discovery could lead to more rapid and effective therapies for tuberculosis.
Australian researchers have demonstrated the success of a novel TB vaccine in mice, which could provide another treatment option for the disease.
A gene signature in the bloodstream could reveal whether someone is going to develop active tuberculosis (TB) disease months before symptoms begin.
The mechanism our immune cells use to clear bacterial infections like tuberculosis might also be implicated in Parkinson's disease...
Researchers from the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, New York, have discovered a key metabolic mechanism in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) bacteria, which presents as a novel drug target for potentially treating tuberculosis.
The collaboration will provide MSc students with industry-relevant learning tools and pharma with a new pipeline of candidate compounds.
Investigators at Dartmouth's Geisel School of Medicine announced that two new studies of DAR-901, their investigational vaccine against tuberculosis (TB), have moved it to the forefront of new vaccines in development for global control of this deadly infectious disease.
Scientists unveil the complex molecular structure that causes lethal infections by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). Their findings might have implications for potential therapies against antibiotic-resistant tuberculosis.
Believed by many to be a relic of past centuries, tuberculosis (TB) causes more deaths than any other infectious disease including HIV/AIDs. In 2015 there were an estimated 10.4 million new cases of TB and 1.4 million deaths from the disease.
