Immunity biomarkers that predict susceptibility against recurrent tuberculosis are missing. Failure to develop effective T-cell memory during active disease and recovery may account for increased susceptibility against recurrent disease. Pathogen persistence and the accessibility of key cytokines, predominantly[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
