Multidrug resistant tuberculosis (TB) is only about half as transmissible as drug susceptible TB among household contacts, a study has found, suggesting that the fitness of the resistant TB strain is less than those that respond to drug treatment1 and providing encouraging new information on the chances of containing its spread.

Commentary: Making middle income countries pay full price for drugs is a big mistake

Middle income countries are home to nearly three quarters of the global population, 73% of the world’s impoverished people, and most of the world’s sick.1 Most cases of tuberculosis and vaccine preventable diseases occur there.2 As of 2012, about 60% of people living with HIV resided in middle income countries; by 2020, that proportion is expected to jump to 70%.3 Of the roughly 15 million people with HIV who do not have access to antiretrovirals, about two thirds live in middle income countries.4

Author’s reply to English and Potter

I would like to add a few remarks to the discussion on the efficacy of provisions for testing for and treating particular infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis, for undocumented migrants.1 2 3 Such provisions exist in several European countries, although in a few countries only testing is available, and not treatment, which has obvious medical and ethical implications.

Novel drugs and drug combinations for treating tuberculosis

A 56 year old man presented with pain and numbness in his lower legs. He had been treated for pulmonary tuberculosis for the previous six weeks. He thought that his symptoms had started a fortnight previously, after the tuberculosis clinic changed his treatment from a fixed dose combination preparation to multiple, separate drugs. He thought that the new tablets may be causing his symptoms. His partner was also being treated for tuberculosis but with even fewer tablets taken once weekly, and he wondered whether he could take the same treatment as she had. He had a history of excess alcohol intake and admitted to binge drinking at the weekends.
