How the Human Immune System Keeps TB at Bay How the Human Immune System Keeps TB at Bay
A new tissue culture model using human white blood cells shows how people with a latent -- or symptom-free -- tuberculosis infection are protected from active disease by a critical early step in their immune response, researchers say.

Xpert MTB/RIF assay for diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis in children: A systematic review and meta-analysis Xpert MTB/RIF assay for diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis in children: A systematic review and meta-analysis
Microbiological confirmation of childhood tuberculosis is rare because of the difficulty of collection of specimens, low sensitivity of smear microscopy, and poor access to culture.

Phase 2b trial results of novel TB regimen show potential to shorten treatment Phase 2b trial results of novel TB regimen show potential to shorten treatment
A new tuberculosis (TB) drug regimen designed to improve options for TB therapy eliminated more bacteria from sputum than standard therapy and did so at a faster rate, according to data from a phase 2b clinical trial.

Minimizing 'false positives' key to vaccinating against bovine TB Minimizing 'false positives' key to vaccinating against bovine TB
New diagnostic tests are needed to make vaccination against bovine tuberculosis (bovine TB) viable and the number of false positives from these tests must be below 15 out of every 10,000 cattle tested, according to research.

Did you know that Aboalis Avicenne (980-1037)

was the first doctor who described three stages

for tuberculosis.  In his book

Canin  de La Medicine he named them as :

*.Stade de preinflammatoire

*.Stade de ulcere rongeant

*.Stade de Caverne
