A panel of ten protein antigens of Mycobacterium tuberculosis was used to evaluate serum antibody responses to tuberculosis in patients co-infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and in HIV-infected control individuals without tuberculosis. Most (70%) of the tuberculosis patients had serum reactivity to at least one antigen and maintained the diverse antibody repertoire previously observed in HIV-negative tuberculosis patients.
