Tuberculosis (TB) is a serious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. There are two phases: latent infection and active disease. Active TB disease most often affects the lungs, but can involve any part of the body.

Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease usually caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) bacteria. Tuberculosis generally affects the lungs, but can also affect other parts of the body.

Progression to disease may occur soon after infection by M. tuberculosis or latent infection may be reactivated. Further, response to treatment is often slower and outcome is worse than in HIV . A handful of deadly infectious diseases, especially in low-income countries, claim millions of lives worldwide each year: lower respiratory tract infections, diarrheal diseases, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and er, they account for more than one in eight deaths globally. Several of these diseases have plagued humankind throughout history, often decimating populations with greater.

To mark World TB Day this year, we at NIAID again join the world’s public health organizations in declaring that “It’s Time” to consign tuberculosis to the history books by conducting the research needed to end this disease. Tuberculosis (TB) is a contagious disease caused by infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) bacteria. It is spread through the air when a person with TB disease of the lungs or throat coughs, speaks or sings, and people nearby breathe in these bacteria and become infected. TB typically affects the lungs, but it can also affect other parts of the body, including the kidney, spine and.

Since the s, the medical community has been faced with infectious diseases, which have brought significant public health and financial challenges. Currently, routine testing for the laboratory diagnosis for infectious agents is based on cell culture, serological, and molecular methods.

However, cell culture-based methods are used mainly in research laboratories and are less sensitive Author: Danielle Alves Gomes Zauli. Multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) has emerged as a global epidemic, with ∼new cases estimated to occur annually.
