Abstract [en]

Nitric oxide (NO), produced by the inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), is important in host defence against Mycobacterium tuberculosis in rodents, but the presence of high-output NO production in human tuberculosis has been controversial. We investigated iNOS and nitrotyrosine (Ntyr) expression in pleural (n = 7), pulmonary (n = 5) and lymph node biopsies (n = 5) from untreated, newly diagnosed tuberculosis patients. Many iNOS and Ntyr reactive macrophages were observed in granulomas, including Langhans giant cells, indicating high-output NO production at the primary site of disease in tuberculosis.
