Mouse models
We combine our infection model for tuberculosis with different infection models for malaria in order to investigate the mutual influence of both diseases in the coinfected host.

 

In vitro infection models:

Infection of primary macrophages with M. tuberculosis or M. bovis BCG and Plasmodium-infected red blood cells
