Disease Background | Tuberculosis 2015: WHO states TB is a bacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis that most often affects the lungs and is one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide causing 1.8 million deaths in 2015. A total of 9,557 TB cases were reported in the US. Rate of 3 cases/100,000 persons in US; 36 cases/100,000 India and 99 cases/100000 Nigeria. The TB epidemic is larger than previously estimated, reflecting new surveillance and survey data from India. However, the number of TB deaths and the TB incidence rate continue to fall globally and in India.
Rates of TB for Different Racial and Ethnic Groups

Multi-Drug Resistance (MDR) called XDR-TB | Newly discovered mutations help tuberculosis to stay infectious while evolving resistance to multiple drugs; impervious to 2 common first-line antibiotics that cure most TB infections while 16% of isolates harboured mutations that made them impervious to ‘second-line’ drugs. These infections are more expensive to treat and patients who receive ineffective drugs are more likely to spread TB. Four main drugs ineffective in South Africa.
Tuberculosis strains carry mutations that not only make them resistant to antibiotics but also help them to spread more effectively, according to an analysis of 1000 genomes from different TB isolates in Russia. TB is spread through direct person-to-person contact. The bacteria usually attack patients' lungs but can also hit the kidneys spine and brain. Tuberculosis can be fatal. XDR takes 18 to 24 months of treatment
XDR-TB Treatment | "Six to 9 of those months are taking an injectable drug. It's painful. It has side effects. For the remaining months, you're taking other drugs with really difficult side effects."
These side effects include serious nerve damage, rashes, jaundice, vomiting, even permanent hearing loss. And patients who are treated have only about a 1 in 4 chance of successfully defeating the infection, according to the World Health Organization.
Stopping the cycle of transmission | Compliance to drug taking is a major factor and early treatment through community survey and implementing “airborne-infection-control programs in hospitals, health-care and other congregate settings: TB is a bacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis that most often affects the lungs. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), TB is one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide, causing 1.8 million deaths in 2015. Although curable and preventable, a 6- to 9-month treatment regimen consisting of four antibiotics—isoniazid, rifampin, ethambutol, and pyrazinamide—must be strictly followed. When patients don't follow and complete the regimen or receive inadequate care, the disease can become resistant.
Annual World TB Day 2017 — "Unite to End TB | World TB Day on March 24, 2017 commemorates the date in 1882 when Dr. Robert Koch announced his discovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis TB" the bacillus that causes tuberculosis. @CDC_TB and Facebook @CDCTB and sign up for email updates through GovDelivery.
Symptoms of TB in the lungs may include
Skin tests, blood tests, x-rays, and other tests can tell if you have TB. If not treated properly, TB can be deadly. You can usually cure active TB by taking several medicines for a long period of time.

Bovine TB is a bacteria unusually persistent in deer | A large dairy herd in Alpena County and a large beef herd in Montmorency County have become the latest found by the state to be infected with a disease that could potentially harm humans and wipe out farms: bovine tuberculosis.
The potentially devastating disease — which also is a potential public health issue and has cost Michigan and the federal government more than $100 million to fight since the late 1990s — is persisting in the wild deer herd in northeast Lower Michigan and crossing over into cattle. And that can cause major disruptions and financial hardships on dairy and other cattle farmers because a bovine TB discovery can mean months of quarantine, testing and often euthanization of part or all of a herd.
Transplantation-Transmitted Tuberculosis --- Oklahoma and Texas, 2007 | Approximately 28,000 organ transplants were performed in the United States in 2007 (1). When infections are transmitted from donors, the implications can be serious for multiple recipients (2--4). Tuberculosis (TB), a known infectious disease complication associated with organ transplantation, occurs in an estimated 0.35%--6.5% of organ recipients in the United States and Europe post transplantation (2). In 2007, the Oklahoma State Department of Health identified Mycobacterium tuberculosis in an organ donor 3 weeks after the donor's death.

Why do we propagate allopathic treatment? Can't we cure tuberculosis by Homoeopathy?
Dear Veeraraghavan. We have just posted information comparing the approach and treatment of allopathy to the use of Totality of Symptoms in order to select appropriate homeopathic remedies and the importance of case management.
