Abdul Ghafur: Adventurous, emotional, outspoken

Abdul Ghafur, consultant in infectious diseases at Apollo Hospital in Chennai, India, convened a meeting of the medical societies of India in 2012 that generated the Chennai Declaration, a plan to tackle the challenge of antibiotic resistance. He trained in India and then worked as a registrar at the Royal Free Hospital in London from 2003 to 2008. He argues that a perfect strategy for controlling antibiotics in developing countries may not be possible but that rules should be liberal at first, becoming gradually more restrictive. He is a member of the Longitude Prize Advisory Panel.

Global health agenda on non-communicable diseases: has WHO set a smart goal for physical activity?

Philipe de Souto Barreto argues that, to reduce premature mortality, policies should focus on getting fully inactive people to do a little physical activity rather than strive for the entire population to meet current physical activity recommendations

Medical Microbiology - NCBI Bookshelf

Medical Microbiology begins with a review of the immune system, focusing on the body's response to invading microorganisms. Bacteria are then covered, first with a series of chapters presenting the general concepts of bacterial microbiology and then with chapters detailing the major bacterial pathogenes of humans. Similar sections cover virology, mycology, and parasitology. In each section, the introductory chapters stress the mechanisms of infection characteristic of that type of microorganism, thus providing the reader with a framework for understanding rather than memorizing the clinical behavior of the pathogens. The final section of the book Introduction to Infectious Diseases, is arranged by organ system and provides transition for clinical considerations.

A reform too late and a “redisorganisation” too far

The World Health Organization is at the forefront of our efforts to defeat Ebola virus disease. Preventing and treating communicable diseases were the making of WHO as an international organisation capable of delivering successful health campaigns. Historically, Africa has preoccupied WHO more than any other continent. Recent pandemic threats, from avian flu to Middle East respiratory syndrome, readied WHO for the current crisis that now threatens 15 countries (doi:10.1136/bmj.g6305).

Whom should we “test and treat” for Helicobacter pylori?

The possibility that peptic ulcer and gastric cancer could be an infectious disease would have been dismissed as ridiculous 30 years ago. We now realise that Helicobacter pylori infection is the major cause of both. As H pylori infection has been implicated in various upper gastrointestinal diseases, testing for the bacterium non-invasively and treating infected individuals (“test and treat”) has become widespread. The key question is in which group of patients is this approach appropriate?
