Co-infections, in particular tuberculosis (TB), are becoming increasingly recognized as confounders in the HIV epidemic. It is well known that increased prevalence of TB cases is due to immune deficiency caused by HIV. Thus, biological dissection of the interplay between these two pathogens and their subsequent deleterious consequences are important areas of study to enable appropriate interventions.
The new HIV co-morbidities sub-core adds a number of immunological assays mainly focused on Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) and innate immunity such as:
