Tuberculosis (TB) is a contagious bacterial infection that involves the lungs. It grows best in areas of the body that have lots of blood and oxygen. That's why it is most often found in the lungs. This is called TB. But TB can also spread to other parts of the body, which is called extra pulmonary TB. It may spread to other organs. The bacterium (germ) that causes TB is called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This germ can cause other kinds of TB, but pulmonary TB is the most common. People who are most at risk for developing TB disease are the elderly, small children, smokers, people who already have an immune system problem, such as HIV, people who do not regularly see a doctor, such as homeless people, people who live in crowded conditions. The symptoms of tuberculosis are- loss of weight, loss of energy, poor appetite, fever, a productive cough, night sweats , breathlessness, extreme tiredness or fatigue and unexplained pain for more than three weeks.
Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). Tuberculosis generally affects the lungs, but can also affect other parts of the body. Most infections do not have symptoms, known as latent tuberculosis. About 10% of latent infections progress to active disease which, if left untreated, kills about half of those infected. The classic symptoms of active TB are a chronic cough with blood-containing sputum, fever, night sweats, and weight loss. The historical term "consumption" came about due to the weight loss. Infection of other organs can cause a wide range of symptoms.
Scope and Importance:
The prevalence of tuberculosis in adult men in India is 2–4 times higher than in women. Tobacco smoking is prevalent almost exclusively among men, so it is possible that tobacco smoking may be a risk factor for developing Tuberculosis. A nested case control study was carried out to study the association between tobacco smoking and tuberculosis. Tuberculosis can cause chronic impairment of lung function which increases incrementally with the number of episodes of tuberculosis. Clearly, prevention of tuberculosis and its effect on lung function is important and can be achieved by early detection and by reduction of the risk of tuberculosis through intervention on risk factors such as HIV, silica dust exposure, silicosis, and socioeconomic factors. Hundreds of studies have evaluated the diagnostic accuracy of nucleic-acid amplification tests (NAATs) for tuberculosis (TB). Commercial tests have been shown to give more consistent results than in-house assays. Previous meta-analyses have found high specificity but low and highly variable estimates of sensitivity. However, reasons for variability in study results have not been adequately explored. We performed a meta-analysis on the accuracy of commercial NAATs to diagnose pulmonary TB and meta-regression to identify factors that are associated with higher accuracy.
Pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) is a contagious bacterial infection that involves the lungs. It grows best in areas of the body that have lots of blood and oxygen. That's why it is most often found in the lungs. This is called pulmonary TB. But TB can also spread to other parts of the body, which is called extra pulmonary TB. It may spread to other organs. The bacterium (germ) that causes TB is called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This germ can cause other kinds of TB, but pulmonary TB is the most common. People who are most at risk for developing TB disease are the elderly, small children, smokers, people who already have an immune system problem, such as HIV, people who do not regularly see a doctor, such as homeless people, people who live in crowded conditions. The symptoms of tuberculosis are- loss of weight, loss of energy, poor appetite, fever, a productive cough, night sweats , breathlessness, extreme tiredness or fatigue and unexplained pain for more than three weeks. There are different tests for the diagnosis of tuberculosis which includes- Biopsy of the affected tissue, Bronchoscopy, Chest CT scan, Chest x-ray and Tuberculin skin test. Therapy for TB requires a minimum of 6 months of treatment except for culture-negative pulmonary TB. Treatment is initiated when TB is confirmed or strongly suspected and consists of an initial intensive phase and a subsequent continuation phase. Treatment of latent infection is usually with isoniazid for 9 months, or rifampicin for 4 months. If exogenous reinfection is suspected, TB treatment should be based on the drug susceptibility profile of the index case, if known. Pulmonary tuberculosis Conference provides the scope for opportunities to learn progressed by international scientists and academicians. Pulmonary tuberculosis Conference offers excessive quality content to suit the diverse development of medicines and technology to treat people all over the globe. Pulmonary tuberculosis conference is a perfect platform to discuss the current discoveries and developments in the field of Pulmonology.
