Fighting tuberculosis using the body's natural anti-microbial processes

A new approach to combatting tuberculosis would take advantage of a complex, natural process called autophagy that the human body uses to recycle nutrients, remove damaged cell components, eliminate invading bacteria, and respond to inflammation. In addition to its potential as a novel therapeutic strategy, autophagy is the focus of increasing research to understand the role it may have in a range of diseases including heart disease, diabetes, and age-related neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease.
