'Release and kill' strategy may aid treatment of tuberculosis 'Release and kill' strategy may aid treatment of tuberculosis
Mycobacterium tuberculosis has been called "the perfect pathogen." These bacteria hijack human macrophages, persist inside the cells to evade immune destruction, and then prevent the macrophage from undergoing programmed cell death.
