Effects of Air Pollution Particulate Matter on Adaptive Antimycobacterial Immunity

The worldwide increase in urban air pollution from growing industrial production and vehicular traffic poses serious threats to global public health. Air pollution particulate matter (PM) may also render large populations vulnerable to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection (M.tb) and progression to active tuberculosis. My study uses real-world PM and human immune cells to explore the effects of PM on human adaptive immune responses to M.tb and expose the potential risk of PM on lung diseases
