    Tuberculosis bacteria hide in the low oxygen niches of bone marrow stem cells

    A new study from the Forsyth Institute is helping to shed light on latent tuberculosis and the bacteria’s ability to hide in stem cells. Some bone marrow stem cells reside in low oxygen (hypoxia) zones. These specialized zones are secured as immune cells and toxic chemicals cannot reach this zone. Hypoxia- activated cell signaling pathways may also protect the stem cells from dying or ageing. A new study led by Forsyth Scientist Dr.
