Xpert MTB/RIF and Xpert Ultra for diagnosing pulmonary tuberculosis and rifampicin resistance in adults
Most Cochrane Reviews look at the effects of interventions on health, but a growing number provide evidence on how to diagnose a disease. In June 2019, one of these, on a test used to detect tuberculosis, was updated. The lead author, David Horne from the University of Washington in Seattle in the USA, sets the scene and tells us what the review found. (Source: Podcasts from The Cochrane Library)

Xpert ® MTB/RIF test for diagnosing extrapulmonary tuberculosis and rifampicin resistance
Most Cochrane Reviews look at the effects of interventions on health, but a growing number are providing g evidence on the accuracy of different ways of diagnosing a disease. These were added to in August 2018 by a new review on a test used in the management of tuberculosis.

Directly observed therapy for treating tuberculosis
Tuberculosis is a leading cause of death in low- and middle-income countries, despite the availability of effective treatments. In the latest update of the Cochrane Review of one of the methods that might help in the delivery of these treatments, Jamlick Karumbi and Paul Garner have brought together the latest evidence on directly observed therapy. Jamlick, from the SIRCLE collaboration based in Nairobi in Kenya, tells us what they found in the review that was published in May 2015. (Source: Podcasts from The Cochrane Library)

#83 In Cambodia, Improving TB Care
Cambodia has one of the highest tuberculosis burdens in the world, according to the WHO. TB and its drug-resistant forms can be extremely difficult to diagnose and treat, especially in resource-poor countries, where the disease takes advantage of immune systems weaken by malnutrition and HIV, and people have limited access to health care. MSF has been working to improve TB diagnosis, treatment, and training in southeastern city of Kampong Cham. (Source: MSF Podcasts)

#73 Meet the first MSF patient to have recovered from XDR-TB
XDR-TB stands for extensive drug resistant tuberculosis. Drugs for TB have not been improved in four decades; they cause terrible side effects and require the patient to take numerous pills every day for between six months and three years. While one in five patients under treatment for moderately resistant strains of the disease do not survive, patients with extensively resistant cases, if they can get treatment at all, usually must rely on less effective and more toxic medicines, with lower success rates. For these reasons and others, Xoliswa Armans is a remarkable patient. (Source: MSF Podcasts)
