Hello,

I want to understand following aspect:-

Suppose a person is exposed to TB bacterias & gets some passing acute
reactions but didn't get it as full active stage. So he aquires latent
TB infections with out any symptoms. I think it is due to inability of
immunity to handle all the bacterias on its exposure at that time. Our
defence system then opt for 2nd option--arrest/encapsule these
bacterias as latent stage to stop their multiplication & spread or
starve these in capsule by arresting or wait for the right oppurtunity
by improving the immunity/defence power to kill them. Is it right?

Now suppose that person gets his immunity/defence power suitably
improved after some time to handle those hidden/dormant or encapsuled
bacterias OR weakens it.

What will happen? On improving the immunity--will those bacterias be
resurfaced/directly exposed to immune agents to kill them as a
"direction towards cure" & presenting an apparent impression of active
stage OR not? On weakenung the immunity--will these infecting agents
be resurfaced, multiply & spread as a "direction towards spread of
disease" OR not? Same can be thought about cancer.

In short; can impression of active stage/spread after a latency/tumor
formation be a direction towards cure on improved immunity AND a
direction towards increase in infection/disease on weakening of
immunity/defence power?


Best regards.
