KOL-Index: 59 This study describes the epidemiology of extrapulmonary tuberculosis (TB) in the Netherlands from 1993 through 2001. We assessed whether the increasing numbers of inhabitants with a non-Western ethnic background had an effect on the number of extrapulmonary patients. We used data from the Netherlands Tuberculosis Register and included all cases of TB diagnosed in the Netherlands between ...

KOL-Index: 53 BACKGROUND: Infants are a target population for new tuberculosis (TB) vaccines. TB incidence estimates are needed to guide the design of trials. To determine the TB incidence and cohort retention among young children using comprehensive diagnostic methods in a high burden area. METHODS: Infants 0-42 days were enrolled. Through 4 monthly follow-up and unscheduled (sick) visits up to the age ...

KOL-Index: 52 BACKGROUND: We conducted a tuberculosis (TB) prevalence survey and evaluated the screening methods used in our survey, to assess if screening in TB prevalence surveys could be simplified, and to assess the accuracy of screening algorithms that may be applicable for active case finding. METHODS: All participants with a positive screen on either a symptom questionnaire, chest radiography (CXR) ...

KOL-Index: 45 BACKGROUND: The prognosis, specifically the case fatality and duration, of untreated tuberculosis is important as many patients are not correctly diagnosed and therefore receive inadequate or no treatment. Furthermore, duration and case fatality of tuberculosis are key parameters in interpreting epidemiological data. METHODOLOGY AND PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: To estimate the duration and case ...

KOL-Index: 40 OBJECTIVE: To determine the trend in the risk of tuberculous infection in non-BCG vaccinated children in Egypt in the period 1950-1996. METHODS: In 1949-1952, a tuberculin survey was carried out in Egypt by the World Health Organization (WHO) covering 103 districts. In 1995-1997 a tuberculin survey was carried in 73 620 primary school children in grade one in the same districts, using ...

KOL-Index: 39 OBJECTIVES: To evaluate excess mortality and risk factors for death during anti-tuberculosis treatment in Western Kenya. METHODS: We abstracted surveillance data and compared mortality rates during anti-tuberculosis treatment with all-cause mortality from a health and demographic surveillance population to obtain standardised mortality ratios (SMRs). Risk factors for excess mortality were ...

KOL-Index: 38 BACKGROUND: Mortality from TB continues to be a global public health challenge. TB ranks alongside Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) as the leading infectious causes of death globally. HIV is a major driver of TB related morbidity and mortality while TB is the leading cause of mortality among people living with HIV/AIDS. We sought to determine excess mortality associated with HIV and the ...

KOL-Index: 35 The tuberculosis (TB) notification rate is high and increasing in 2 communities in Cape Town, South Africa. In 2002, we conducted a prevalence survey among adults > or = 15 years of age to determine the TB prevalence rate; 15% of households in these communities were randomly sampled. All persons living in sampled households were eligible for chest radiography and sputum examination. Of the ...

KOL-Index: 32 The aim of this study was to determine the nationwide prevalence of smear-positive tuberculosis (TB) in Bangladesh. A multi-stage cluster survey of a random sample of persons aged ≥ 15 years was included in 40 clusters (20 urban, 20 rural). Two sputum samples were collected from study participants and tested initially by fluorescence microscopy and confirmed by the Ziehl-Neelsen method. The ...

KOL-Index: 30 BACKGROUND: Current diagnostic tests cannot identify which infected individuals are at risk for progression to tuberculosis (TB). Our aim was to identify biomarkers which can predict the development of TB prior to clinical diagnosis. METHOD: In a retrospective case-control study, RNA of 14 HIV-infected drug users obtained before TB diagnosis (cases) and of 15 who did not develop TB ...
