Immune Responses in Animal Models
Animal models have made major contributions to our understanding of the nature of the immune response to tuberculosis. Although each of the most popular models tend to give us a different perspective of the disease process, the collective information gained has given us considerable insight into the basis of susceptibility and resistance to disease as well as the nature of both protective immunity and immunopathology.
