Both delayed hypersensitivity (MIF) and cell mediated immunity (MYCOIF) play a role
in antibacterial mechanism in tuberculosis. They arc mediated by different lymphokines. Antibody has
no role in antibacterial immunity in tuberculosis. The agglutination test (Nicholls) was found lo be
ineffective in determining both aetiology and activity of a lesion. Rifampicin is not an immunosuppressivc
drug in tuberculosis patients.
