Stimulating two receptors on macrophages helps clear TB bacteria

Researchers from IIT Ropar and CSIR-IMTECH have found that stimulating two specific receptors found on the macrophages helps in killing TB bacteria. Once activated, the macrophages eliminate the bacteria through autophagy. Activating the receptors leads to ten-fold reduction in anti-TB drug required to kill TB bacteria. Instead of using drugs to directly kill TB bacteria, … Continue reading Stimulating two receptors on macrophages helps clear TB bacteria
