The Role of TLR-4 Polymorphisms in Children With Urinary Track Infections

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:20th Dec 2013
Purpose: So far anatomical abnormalities (mostly congenital) were, in the majority of the patients, associated with urinary track infections. In this study the researchers will try to investigate the role of TLRs as molecular interactions between bacterial virulence and host response. TLRs are important mediators in the development of the natural immunity against bacteria. They recognize microbial pathogen associated molecular patterns and alert the host's immune system to the presence of invading microbes
