A new paper published from our Unit. “The key role of exudative lesions and their encapsulation: lessons learned from the pathology of human pulmonary tuberculosis” at Frontiers in Microbiology (doi.org/10.3389/fmicb.2015.00612). This review comes from an exhaustive research on data from human necropsies with TB lesions done mainly before the antibiotic era. The objective is to try to understand the human spectrum of the TB lesions and its evolution in order to mimic it with the available “in vivo” experimental models.
This review has been partially presented at the workshop “Immunopathology of Tuberculosis” celebrated at the “Mycobacteria Research Laboratories” at the Colorado State University (Fort Collins, CO, USA) and at the “4th Global Forum on TB Vaccines” celebrated at Shangai (China), both on April 2015.
