World Health Organization publishes its first essential diagnostics list 16.5.2018 DNA: Mumbai
The World Health Organization (WHO) has published its first 'essential diagnostics list', a catalogue of tests needed to diagnose the most common conditions as well as a number of global priority diseases. The step was taken to address the problem of people's inability to access diagnostic services, thus failing to receive the correct treatment. "An accurate diagnosis is the first step to getting effective treatment. No one should suffer or die because of lack of diagnostic services, or because the right tests were not available, said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General. An estimated 46 per cent of adults with Type 2 diabetes worldwide were undiagnosed, risking serious health complications and higher health costs, said a statement by the world health body yesterday.

TB: Is tolerating better than eliminating? 13.5.2018 General News
Turns out, tolerating an infection without eliminating a pathogen is far more beneficial than simply killing it.According to a research conducted by the McGill University Health Centre, some scientists have taken a lesson from plant biologists about an ancient strategy involving the ability to 'tolerate' rather than 'resist' infection to maintain health.The concept, referred to as "disease tolerance," provided an opportunity to develop new strategies that mitigate the consequences of infection.Historically, our view of host defense against infection was that we must eliminate pathogens to eradicate the disease.Since the discovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, or Mtb, (the bacteria causing TB) over a century ago, great progress had been made in defining strategies that facilitate elimination of the bacteria.For instance, the discovery of antibiotics was a major breakthrough in the treatment of active TB. However, greater than 90 percent of TB-infected individuals tolerate the bacteria
