    J Infect Dis 186:517-21. 2002
    ..These results indicate that variant alleles in the Nramp1 gene are associated with increased mycobacterial replication rather than susceptibility for tuberculosis and may thus confer increased risk of severe disease...

    J Infect Dis 188:777-82. 2003
    ..The same tendency also was observed in patients of other ethnic origin. It may be hypothesized that heterozygosity for MBL variant alleles, which encodes low serum MBL levels, is associated with protection against clinical tuberculosis...
