Abstract Share this page

As an ancient microbe, Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) is an extremely successful pathogen. MTB causes more deaths worldwide now than at any previous time in history as the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that approximately one-third of the world’s population (roughly 2 billion total) is infected with MTB [1]. MTB is a major health threat, causing 9 million new infections and between 2 and 3 million deaths annually. Future prospects look bleak due to the increasing impact of HIV and drug resistance MTB strains (MDR) on the TB epidemic [1].
