Through an in vivo model of high susceptibility to MTB infection in DBA/2 mice, we utilized a multi-omic approach to show that caloric restriction (CR) is able to control pulmonary MTB infection and associated inflammatory damage through an immunometabolic reprogramming and enhanced anti-MTB capacity of immune cells. These data candidate CR as a novel strategy in the management of MTB infection in countries where TB is rapidly increasing in association with over-nutrition and obesity.

Abstract

Through an in vivo model of high susceptibility to MTB infection in DBA/2 mice, we utilized a multi-omic approach to show that caloric restriction (CR) is able to control pulmonary MTB infection and associated inflammatory damage through an immunometabolic reprogramming and enhanced anti-MTB capacity of immune cells. These data candidate CR as a novel strategy in the management of MTB infection in countries where TB is rapidly increasing in association with over-nutrition and obesity.
