REVIEW
M Happaerts, N Lorent, E André
Despite its historical decline, TB remains a significant cause of infectious disease-related global deaths. The lack of reliable diagnostic tests for vulnerable groups, such as children and immunocompromised patients, remains a challenge for TB control. For decades, it has been recognised that exhaled breath has great potential as a non-invasive and universally accessible clinical alternative to sputum and invasive sampling methods. Although translation into clinical practice has not yet occurred, there has been significant progress with promising results in various applications, including diagnosis, estimation of infectiousness, and monitoring of treatment response...

<sec><title>BACKGROUND</title>Substantial under-notification of TB among non-citizens has been noted previously. Foreign workers with TB who were deported previously could stay for anti-TB treatment since 2014. We assessed whether TB notification improved.</sec><sec><title>METHODS</title>We used the National Health Insurance (NHI) reimbursement database to identify potential TB cases that required notification. We matched potential TB cases with the national TB registry to determine whether they had been notified...

<sec><title>BACKGROUND</title>Engaging private health providers and community healthcare workers (CHWs) in the provision of TB care services can increase TB case notification and limit community transmission. We determined whether private pharmacy and community engagement could affect access to TB diagnostic and treatment services in Uganda.</sec><sec><title>METHODS</title>We conducted a cross-sectional study on patients diagnosed with TB through three different pathways; by private pharmacies, CHWs, and public health facilities...

<sec id="st1"><title>BACKGROUND</title>Given the high prevalence of asthma-chronic obstructive pulmonary disease overlap (ACO) in Vietnam, there is an urgent need to establish a simplified strategy for categorising patients as either having asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This classification would streamline the application of treatment recommendations outlined by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) and the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD)...

<sec id="st1"><title>BACKGROUND</title>Current metrics for TB transmission include TB notifications, disease mortality, and prevalence surveys. These metrics are helpful to national TB programs to assess the burden of disease, but they do not directly measure incident infection in the community.</sec><sec id="st2"><title>METHODS</title>To estimate incidence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in Kampala, Uganda, we performed a prospective cohort study between 2014 and 2017 which enrolled of 1,275 adult residents without signs of tuberculous infection (tuberculin skin test [TST] <5 mm and no signs of TB disease) and followed them for conversion of TST at 1 year...
