1. Th1/Th2 Imbalance and Elevated PD-L1 in Pleural Effusion Predict the Risk of Multi-Drug Resistant Tuberculous Pleuritis

Hongyan Xu; Yueqing Yang; Qianhong Wu; Yan Zhang

Volume 17, Issue 1 , Winter 2020, , Pages 1-13


  Background: Patient immune status might be indicative of the variance in bacterial genetics in drug-resistant tuberculous pleuritis and could be used for predicting the risk of multi-drug resistant tuberculous pleuritis (MDR-TB). Objective: To determine the significance of Th2/Th1 ratio and concentration ...  Read More

2. Disseminated Bacillus Calmette-Guérin Disease after BCG Vaccination: A Case Report from China

Luoya Ling; Youqing Wang; Ye Ding; Lin Zheng; Xiaohua Qi; Mingjuan Jin; Kun Chen; Shuyun Xie

Volume 12, Issue 1 , Winter 2015, , Pages 70-73

  Background: Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccination is recommended for newborn infants worldwide to prevent tuberculosis. However, complications do occur inevitably in a very low rate, among which the most serious is disseminated disease. The disseminated bacillus Calmette–Guérin ...  Read More

3. Association of KIR3DS1+HLA-B Bw4Ile80 Combination with Susceptibility to Tuberculosis in Lur Population of Iran

Farhad Shahsavar; Tahereh Mousavi; Alireza Azargoon; Kobra Entezami

Volume 9, Issue 1 , Winter 2012, , Pages 39-47

  Background: Natural killer (NK) cells are the effector cells of innate immunity that respond to infection and tumor. Interactions between killer cell immunoglobulin like receptors (KIR) and human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I molecules regulate NK cells responses to eliminate infected and transformed ...  Read More

Iraj Nikokar; Manouchehr Makvandi; Mohammad Javad Kajbaf; Ahmad Farajzadeh; Mehdi Mirsaeidi; Eskandar Kamali-Sarvestani; Ali Mostafaie; Kris Huygen

Volume 3, Issue 2 , Spring 2006, , Pages 70-77

  Background: Tuberculosis (TB) remains an important health problem throughout the world. Despite its significance in public health, mechanisms of protective immunity against Mycobacyerium Tuberculosis in humans have not yet been understood. Objective: To evaluate cell mediated immune response against ...  Read More

5. Cytokines Genes Polymorphisms in Iranian Patients with Pulmonary Tuberculosis

Ali Akbar Amirzargar; Abdol Ali Danesh; Farideh Khosravi; Mohammad Hossein Niknam; Behrouz Nikbin

Volume 1, Issue 2 , Summer 2004, , Pages 125-129

  Background: Pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) has recently become a major problem in developed countries especially in immune compromised HIV infected individuals. Cytokines, their genes and receptors have been implicated in the protective immunity, pathophysiology and development of tuberculosis.   ...  Read More
