-- Indigenously developed point-of-care (POC) molecular diagnostic test validated through multi-centric studies and found to be comparable with internationally approved molecular diagnostic test
A team of scientists led by the University of Southampton has taken an important step forward in research efforts that could one day lead to an effective vaccine against the world’s deadliest infectious disease.
At the beginning of November, a tuberculosis (TB) outbreak in Minnesota killed six people and made front page news. A single case in New York State made regional news last week. And so it goes, here in the U.S.. Wherever it appears, TB is an unexpected and frightening intrusion likely to draw media attention.
The flaws in a system appear most vividly when it fails where it is most required to work. Tuberculosis (TB) is one of India’s severest health crises. It kills two Indians every 3 minutes and more than 1,000 people every day. India accounts for 27% of the world’s 10.4 million new TB cases, and 29% of the 1.8 million TB deaths globally. Surely, this says something about the crisis in our public health policy.
