When tuberculosis faces an even stronger opponent

Detecting tuberculosis – contribution to the battle against infectious diseases - von Carl ZEISS Microscopy Jena

Tuberculosis (TB) is second only to HIV/ AIDS for the dubious distinction of being the world’s greatest killer. TB is a bacterial disease caused by a single infectious agent, <i>Mycobacterium tuberculosis</i>,which most commonly affects the lungs. It is transmitted from person to person via droplets from the throat and lungs of people who have the active respiratory disease.
