Abstract

Tuberculous meningitis is a serious, life-threatening disease affecting vulnerable populations, including HIV-infected individuals and young children. The US National Institutes of Health convened a workshop to identify knowledge gaps in the molecular and immunopathogenic mechanisms of tuberculous meningitis and to develop a roadmap for basic and translational research that could guide clinical studies.
