New publication in Frontiers in Immunology
Research Pathway: Wildlife Health and Disease
Our last publication ‘Protective Effect of Intestinal Helminthiasis Against Tuberculosis Progression Is Abrogated by Intermittent Food Deprivation’, published in Frontiers in Immunology, developed an experimental murine model for active TB in C3HeB/FeJ, co-infected with Trichuris muris and Heligmosomoides polygyrus nematodes, and exposed to an environmental mycobacterium (M. manresensis) and intermittent fasting.
We conducted a Partial Least Square Path Modelling (PLS-PM) approach to explore the association of intermittent fasting, helminth infection, and hkMm with Mtb load.
