Photomicrograph of immune cells (macrophages) infected with the causative agent of tuberculosis (TB), Mycobacterium tuberculosis (stained red) (magnification x1000).

Image A shows infection with wild-type M. tuberculosis, which is able to 'hide' in immune cells, allowing them to survive for longer.

Image B depicts infection with a mutant form of M. tuberculosis. The cells are highly activated becasue the immune evasion mechanisms of the wild-type M. tuberculosis are not present, so the cells are able to mount a stronger immune response.

Understanding how M. tuberculosis modulates the immune system could help us to discover new ways to treat TB.
