A Step Forward in TB Prevention

With chronic and malignant diseases being discovered every year, the need for awareness and precautionary measures are on the increase as well. Several medical organizations are setting up awareness camps and welfare health checkups in order to ensure that the initiative to a healthier society reaches people from all walks of life. 

The importance of good health is a very passive and often, overlooked aspect of this extremely fast-paced lifestyle. Studies have proven that though medicine is far advanced in today’s generation, the success rate of treatment is still dwindling due to the periodic malignancy of a few diseases. Hence, early identification of such diseases is a step forward in ensuring that they can be cured positively.

Tuberculosis is amongst the most potentially serious infectious diseases. Mainly affecting the lungs, it can also affect other parts of the body, including kidneys, spine, and brain. It is caused by extremely contagious bacteria. There is no definitive genetic cause for tuberculosis, but there is a pattern in its occurrences. Environmental conditions, malnutrition, and unclean water or food can be a major cause and especially those affected by HIV or any immune disorder are prone to tuberculosis. What makes tuberculosis even more lethal is the drug-resistance of the causing bacterium.  

Hence, doctors and researchers all over the world are attempting to reduce the casualties of tuberculosis by finding newer and advanced methods for its detection. Drug Screening Test is generally carried out in the corporate world when it comes to hiring new employees. It involves injecting a little amount of tuberculin extract under the skin. If a person has been exposed to the TB Bacteria, their skin will turn red and swollen, indicating a positive result.
