Abstract

The expression of ten tuberculosis candidate genes in lung and lymph nodes of cynomolgus macaques vaccinated and experimentally infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) was quantified. The expression of TNFα, IL10, IL1β, TLR4, IL17, IL6, IL12, and iNOS in the lungs of vaccinated animals was higher than that of non-vaccinated animals.
