The natural process of removing damaged cell parts could present an alternative to antibiotics, especially where bacteria have become resistant to existing drugs.
A new study has found that mycobacteria are associated with red blood cells at lung infection sites, an interaction that has escaped scientists for 140 years.
A recent study has shown that antiretroviral therapy timing impacts the animal version of HIV and latent tuberculosis.
A research team have created a new strategy for developing an effective vaccine against a widespread form of tuberculosis.
Using synthetic chemistry, researchers have fused hydrophobic adjuvants with water-soluble proteins to create a new type of vaccine.
Tested on two assays, researchers have shown that Redx03863 and Redx04739 can combat tuberculosis and do not lead to resistance.
Researchers have developed MorphEUS, a technology to identify new drugs that combat M. tuberculosis by revealing how compounds destroy the bacteria.
A study has shown that the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a high level of research donations, making the condition the third most funded disease on average by year.
