Beyond multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in Europe: a TBNET study.
The emergence of drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) is a challenge to TB control in Europe. We evaluated second-line drug susceptibility testing in Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from patients with multidrug-resistant, ...
Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in Europe, 2010-2011.
Drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis is challenging elimination of tuberculosis (TB). We evaluated risk factors for TB and levels of second-line drug resistance in M. tuberculosis in patients in Europe with ...
Tuberculosis microepidemics among dispersed migrants, Birmingham, UK, 2004-2013.
To determine if local transmission was responsible for rising tuberculosis incidence in a recently dispersed migrant community in Birmingham, UK, during 2004-2013, we conducted enhanced epidemiologic investigation of ...
Imaging features and diagnosis of tuberculosis of the breast.
AIM: To outline the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, imaging features, and relevant investigations of the different subtypes of breast tuberculosis (TB). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A review was undertaken of all cases ...
National roll-out of latent tuberculosis testing and treatment for new migrants in England: a retrospective evaluation in a high-incidence area.
(European Respiratory Society, 2018-01-11)
Latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) screening is an important intervention for tuberculosis (TB) elimination in low-incidence countries and is, therefore, a key component of England's TB control strategy. This study ...
Stratification of Latent Mycobacterium tuberculosis Infection by Cellular Immune Profiling.
(Oxford University Press, 2017-02-28)
Background: Recently acquired and remotely acquired latent Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection (LTBI) are clinically indistinguishable, yet recent acquisition of infection is the greatest risk factor for progression to ...
Maternal and fetal outcomes of tuberculosis during pregnancy and the postpartum period: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Effectiveness and safety of bedaquiline-containing regimens in the treatment of MDR- and XDR-TB: a multicentre study.
(European Respiratory Society, 2017-05-21)
Large studies on bedaquiline used to treat multidrug-resistant (MDR-) and extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB) are lacking. This study aimed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of bedaquiline-containing ...
