AIDS and Tuberculosis: A Deadly Liaison

AIDS and Tuberculosis: A Deadly LiaisonThe immune deficiency AIDS leads to a drastic increase in susceptibility to Tuberculosis. Accordingly, co-infections of tuberculosis (TB) and AIDS have increased dramatically over the last decades and have already killed more than 5 million people worldwide. Currently, no vaccines are available for either of these diseases leaving doctors with limited options for prevention. This perfect storm of pandemics is analysed and explained for the first time in this groundbreaking title, edited by two of the most accomplished experts in this area, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Stefan Kaufmann at the Max-Planck Institute for infectious diseases in Berlin and Prof. Dr. Bruce Walker, director of the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard in Boston.
