Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Thanks to the unprecedented pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2, especially its delta and omicron variants, infections caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tb) have not been adequately diagnosed and managed since 2020 due to overwhelmed health care systems. Pathogens such as M. tb have been around for several thousand years and are still causing significant morbidity and mortality, especially in developing countries. Effective strategies to prevent, diagnose, and manage M. tb infection will greatly reduce morbidity and mortality among children and individuals with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV and type 2 diabetes. We therefore invite research and review articles for this Special Issue on preclinical and clinical research findings that shed light on the mechanistic details of host–pathogen interactions, molecular pathogenesis, and host-directed therapies, on the development of vaccines and therapeutic agents against mycobacterial infections, and on strategies to diagnose and effectively manage the disease.
