Evaluation of host Hsp(s) as potential biomarkers for the diagnosis of tuberculous meningitis

Clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery

Abstract

Diagnosis of tuberculosis meningitis (TBM) remains challenging in tuberculosis (TB) endemic countries. The need for TB biomarkers arises, in part, from the difficulty of accurately diagnosing TBM with the available methods. To explore the potential of host Hsps (Hsp 25, Hsp 60, Hsp 70 a...read more
