New publication reviewing DM-associated immunologic, metabolic, and genetic mechanisms of susceptibility to TB
Another insightful publication from our consortium. This review highlights gaps in the incomplete understanding of the mechanisms that may relate to TB susceptibility in type 2 DM (T2DM). Understanding these three main domains regarding mechanisms of TB susceptibility in T2DM patients can help us build practical treatment plans to lessen the combined burden of the diseases in rampant areas.
