An understanding of protective immunity to mycobacterial infection is critical for the development of effective strategies to control tuberculosis (TB), a major public health problem worldwide. Mendelian susceptibility to mycobacterial disease (MSMD) is a rare condition characterized by clinical disease caused by weakly virulent mycobacteria, such as Mycobacterium bovis Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccines and nontuberculous, environmental mycobacteria (EM) (OMIM209950). ... We therefore tested the hypothesis that the function of the NADPH oxidase complex might be partly dependent on IFN-γ, at least in human MDMs in vitro.
