This study investigates the response of human blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) to a cord-forming strain of Mycobacterium abscessus. A fibrous chromatin-like meshwork containing DNA and histones is produced by the PBMCs, perhaps as a defense mechanism against other invaders. Overall very nicely done and with well-illustrated results.
