CONCLUSIONS: The results confirmed that the risk of mortality due to tuberculosis is a problem associated with social determinants. Health policies and social protection programmes can collaborate to address this problem. PMID: 30878245 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

(The Translational Genomics Research Institute) In an important step toward eradicating tuberculosis (TB), the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), an affiliate of City of Hope, has signed a licensing agreement with an international biomedical firm, Advanced Biological Laboratories (ABL), to market and distribute TGen's patented Next Generation Sequencing based TB test technology. Current tests can take 6-9 weeks to complete. The DeepChek ® -TB test can be completed in just 2-3 days, and can identify drug-resistant TB among mixed infections.

Publication date: Available online 16 March 2019Source: Journal of Structural BiologyAuthor(s): Stefano Benini, Ahmed Haouz, Florence Proux, Pedro Alzari, Keith WilsonAbstractThe crystal structure of the conserved hypothetical protein Rv2991 from Mycobacterium tuberculosis has been solved by SAD using seleno-methionine substituted protein. The dimeric biological assembly and the sequence and fold conservation are typical of F420 cofactor binding enzymes. Despite Rv2991 still being of unknown function, sequence and structural comparison with similar proteins enable a role to be proposed for its C-terminal stretch of residue...

Chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) complicates treated pulmonary tuberculosis (TB), with high 5-year mortality. We measured CPA prevalence in this group. 398 Ugandans with treated pulmonary TB underwent clinical assessment, chest radiography and Aspergillus-specific IgG measurement. 285 were resurveyed 2 years later, including computed tomography of the thorax in 73 with suspected CPA. CPA was diagnosed in patients without active TB who had raised Aspergillus-specific IgG, radiological features of CPA and chronic cough or haemoptysis. Author-defined CPA was present in 14 (4.9%, 95% CI 2.8–7.9%) resurvey patie...
