Tuberculosis (TB) is still a danger!

A recent paper in the New England Journal of Medicine once again highlights the fact that we tend to ignore certain older disease states that we have archived before their demise. TB is one of these. In developed countries it rarely gets a mention, except in immune-compromised patients. In Third World countries TB is still an issue.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) in 2014 places mortality at 1.5 million, with a total of 9.6 million infected individuals(http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs104/en/).

The study carried out in the article emphasises that intensified therapy does not improve intervention outcomes and that mortality is still significant. In a global context, more emphasis must be placed on eradicating basic and long-standing communicable disease, prior to simply discovering new ways in which to market and monetise pharmaceutical care!

The paper, "Intensified Antituberculosis Therapy in Adults with Tuberculous Meningitis",

  1. I have been on blog Sites for a while now and today I felt like I should share my story because I was a victim too. I had HIV for 6 years and I never thought I would ever get a cure I had and this made it impossible for me to get married to the man I was supposed to get married to even after 2 years of relationship he broke up with me when he found out I was HIV positive. So I got to know about Dr. Itua on Blog Site who treated someone and the person shared a story of how she got cured and let her contact details, I contacted Dr. Itua and he actually confirmed it and I decided to give a try too and use his herbal medicine that was how my burden ended completely.
