  • polymerase chain re
  • A study was therefore undertaken to explore the potential of spoligotyping, a polymerase chain reaction based technique that does not require tuberculosis culture. (bmj.com)
  • lung
  • A case report and literature review: previously excluded tuberculosis masked by amiodarone induced lung injury. (medworm.com)
  • Soussan et al 2 has classified the PET appearance of pulmonary MTB into lung and lymphatic patterns and demonstrated improved diagnostic accuracy after taking account of the other specific CT changes such as upper lobe consolidation with cavitations or multiple ill-defined micronodules surrounding a cavity.

  • The IJTLD is dedicated to the continuing education of physicians and health personnel and the dissemination of information on tuberculosis and lung health world-wide. (ingentaconnect.com)
  • incidence
  • There have been reports associating vitamin D deficiency with tuberculosis in terms of incidence and beneficial response following addition of vitamin D to antitubercular therapy. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • In parallel with the worldwide resurgence of tuberculosis, 1 2 the incidence of tuberculosis in Harare has increased from 53.5 to 195 per 100 000 population between 1985 and 1995 (Annual Report of Harare City Health Department, Zimbabwe, 1995). (bmj.com)
  • conclusions
  • CONCLUSIONS Spoligotyping may yield valuable molecular typing information in populations where tuberculosis culture is not available. (bmj.com)
  • physicians
  • Unfortunately there is a tendency today to so de-emphasize or even completely eliminate the teaching of the natural history of tuberculosis that many young physicians are almost totally uninformed of the essentials of this important disease. (annals.org)
  • advances
  • We believe that this issue can contribute to the debate of relevant topics concerning new advances on tuberculosis among pulmonologists, infectologists, clinicians, epidemiologists, and basic science researchers. (hindawi.com)
  • absence
  • The absence of pulmonary masses, mediastinal or hilar lymphadenopathy or nodular thickening of interlobular septa and any bronchovascular bundle made malignancy or lymphangitis carcinomatosis unlikely. (hkmj.org)
  • molecular
  • The use of molecular epidemiology to understand tuberculosis transmission in this epidemic has been hampered by the availability of suitable culture facilities. (bmj.com)
  • 17 Although spoligotyping does not at present have the same discriminatory power as RFLP, the technique does not require culture of the organism and therefore potentially represents a valuable field tool for molecular epidemiology of tuberculosis. (bmj.com)
