How Mycobacterium tuberculosis escapes death in macrophages

This is interesting, came out today on medical express.
If MAP is a cause of crohn's, and if it works the same was as
TB then nicotinamide may help.

My Support Groups:
From what I understand, MAP, TB and Leprosy all function similarly by hijacking the process that macrophages are supposed to do to completely rid the body of infection. The intriguing thing is that most people who have TB in their systems are able to wall it off, keeping it in check in a latent stage. What an incredibly stealthy bacteria! With all the brains and money going into years of vaccine development and we still donít have an effective one is testament to how stealthy it is!
