Antacid helps tuberculosis bacteria to survive

One reason why infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis is so difficult to treat is that the bacteria can hide inside immune cells.

The results were published in Nature Chemical Biology.

I have a strong affinity for the sciences which led me to create my sites. My compulsion for the past decade has been reviewing literally every peer-reviewed research article. Which can easily be validated by following my posts. To me, science is where the real news is, as it will mold our destiny beyond that of politics or economics. 😉 Please feel free to e-mail: 161803p314159@gmail.com
