Tuberculosis and innate immunity – from bench to bedside

Ur aim is to understand the pathogenicity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) focusing on innate immune host defense

Using experimental models and clinical field studies in Ethiopia, we have previously shown that nitrix oxide may play a role in the host defense against mycobacteria.

We are presently focusing on how coinfections with helminths and Mtb affect the immune response, treatment and outcome. Our research is translational combining experimental and clinical studies in Linköping, Ethiopia and Peru.
