Conclusion: The Mtb infection status had a significant impact on mycobacterial growth inhibition in PBMC from healthy adults in South Korea, a country with an intermediate burden of tuberculosis, with healthy controls showing the greatest mycobacterial growth inhibition. Introduction Pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) is an airborne infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), which is a significant burden for the world, reaching 9.6 million new TB cases and 1.5 million deaths per year (1). Also, just under a quarter of the global population is latently infected with Mtb, and 5–10% of them will dev...

And it can prevent up to 11.6 million premature deaths without harming the planet, says the report published Wednesday in the medical journal The Lancet. The authors warn that a global change in diet and food production is needed as 3 billion people across the world are malnourished — which in...

Abstract With the advent of combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) the survival of HIV patients have improved dramatically, but the complications of the disease and treatment have become an important issue in the management of HIV patients. Vitamin-D deficiency is common in HIV patients. Low vitamin-D is associated with different comorbidities in the HIV uninfected general population. In this review, we first briefly describe vitamin D synthesis and mechanism of action and we focus on the epidemiological and clinical data dealing with the relationship between vitamin D deficiency in HIV infection with several c...
