Closest look yet at killer T-cell activity could yield new approach to tackling antibiotic resistance Closest look yet at killer T-cell activity could yield new approach to tackling antibiotic resistance
In a study that could provide a roadmap for combating the rising threat of drug-resistant pathogens, researchers have discovered the specific mechanism the body's T cells use to kill bacteria.

Protein transport channel offers new target for thwarting pathogen Protein transport channel offers new target for thwarting pathogen
A bacterium that attacks people suffering from chronic lung disease and compromised immune systems could be halted by disrupting the distribution channels the organism uses to access the nutrient-rich cytoplasm of its host cell.

Leprosy turns the immune system against itself, study finds Leprosy turns the immune system against itself, study finds
Leprosy hijacks our immune system, turning an important repair mechanism into one that causes potentially irreparable damage to our nerve cells, according to new research that uses zebrafish to study the disease. As such, the disease may share common characteristics with conditions such as multiple ...

Illegal dumping during road construction in Ethiopia affects child mortality Illegal dumping during road construction in Ethiopia affects child mortality
Researchers have shown that living near newly built roads in Ethiopia is associated with higher rates of infant mortality. Proximity to new roads has negative health effects because of toxic waste dumped illegally during the construction phase, according to early research by economists at Queen ...

Putting it to the test Putting it to the test
A rapid portable screening test for liver cancer has been created that doesn't involve sending a specimen to a blood lab and cuts the wait time for results from two weeks to two minutes. This inexpensive test can be administered wherever the patient is, which ...

Understanding the rise in NTM infections Understanding the rise in NTM infections
Why has nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infection traditionally been associated with immunosuppressed people or those with severe underlying lung damage and how has this changed over recent years?

Study finds link between spike in cost of living and tuberculosis death rate Study finds link between spike in cost of living and tuberculosis death rate
New U of T research finds that a rise in the cost of living experienced during times of crisis – like war, outbreaks of disease and food shortages – can lead to a spike in tuberculosis mortality rates, with women the most vulnerable.

New test differentiates between Lyme disease, similar illness New test differentiates between Lyme disease, similar illness
There is now a way to distinguish Lyme disease from similar conditions, report scientists. Lyme disease is the most commonly reported vector-borne illness in the United States. But it can be confused with similar conditions, including Southern Tick-Associated Rash Illness.

Genetic drug resistance tests as good in gauging treatment outcome, death risk as traditional culture-based tests Genetic drug resistance tests as good in gauging treatment outcome, death risk as traditional culture-based tests
Novel molecular tests are gaining popularity as a rapid way to detect genetic mutations that render tuberculosis impervious to drugs. Yet, how well these new tests fare in gauging risk of actual drug failure and patient death has remained unclear.

ECDC highlights need to scale-up efforts for eliminating viral hepatitis in Europe ECDC highlights need to scale-up efforts for eliminating viral hepatitis in Europe
An estimated 4.7 million Europeans are living with chronic hepatitis B and almost 4 million (3.9) with chronic hepatitis C infection. However, large numbers of them are not even aware of their infection as they have not yet been tested and diagnosed.

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
