Abstract: Tuberculosis is one of the most devastating bacterial disease having high rates of morbidity and mortality. Mycobacterium tuberculosis invades the host immune system and persists in pulmonary granulomas.

This review also focuses on the newer untouched targets like immunomodulators and isocitrate lyase inhibitors, which can be further exploited.
