Paper: Malherbe et al. Persisting positron emission tomography lesion activity and Mycobacterium tuberculosis mRNA after tuberculosis cure. Nat Med 2016; 22(10): 1094-1100. [available here]
Please join us to discuss an interesting paper exploring radiological and molecular correlates of TB cure. What does cure mean? Are all bacilli killed? How might the way we define treatment response influence the way we test new drugs and regimens against Mycobacterium tuberculosis?
