Tuberculosis

Mycobacterium tuberculosis under the microscope. Whilst the germ is common around the world, it does not always lead to full blown TB. But when it does, the ailment can be fatal unless treated properly.
 

What is it?

Tuberculosis (often shortened to TB) is a contagious lung disease that is spread by a micro-organism called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The micro-organism is generally transmitted by the airborne water droplets caused by exhalation.

Tuberculosis can effect a number of organs in the human body, including the brain, kidneys and the skeletal structure, but it most commonly destroys the lungs. In the initial stages of the disease, symptoms may be difficult to detect. When an individual does develop symptoms, they can include fever, sweating and severe and rapid weight loss. Individuals suffering from TB also lack endurance and strength, and in some cases are incapacitated in a manner not unlike severe cases of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Left untreated, it can be fatal.

How much of a problem is TB?
Many millions of individuals worldwide carry tuberculosis germs, but for most of them, they are inactive: the body forms a wall around the germs that, whilst not destroying them, prevents them from becoming active. These individuals cannot spread the active germ either.

Like many other ailments, tuberculosis attacks individuals whose immune systems are weakened, such as by prior illness or poor diet. Unsanitary conditions are highly conducive to the spread of the disease, which is why tuberculosis is often associated with economically deprived sectors of society.

Individuals who have both AIDS and inactive tuberculosis stand about a 10% chance of developing active TB.

Many people incorrectly view TB as a disease "of the past", one that was successfully defeated long ago. Whilst TB had disappeared off the "public radar" for a while, it by no means has been eradicated and now appears to be making a come back.

What are the treatments?
Treatment for tuberculosis involves various types of antibiotics, depending on the type of tuberculosis infection. About 90% of people with the ailment can be cured, though treatment may take 12 months and beyond. Furthermore, many of the relevant antibiotics can have severe side effects. Additionally, some forms of TB are becoming resistant to many of the standard treatments.

Where is TB a major problem?
Since the 1990s, the ailment has been spreading alarmingly in Russia and Ukraine. There has been a particular explosion of cases in the prison systems of both countries, many of which are becoming highly resistant to treatment by even the most powerful of antibiotics: in some prisons, 40% of inmates are infected. Other outbreaks have also been reported in economically deprived areas of Eastern Europe.

With immigration from developing countries, the disease is having an increasing impact on the developed world. Globally, approximately 3 million individuals die from the disease on an annual basis, with a significantly larger number severely affected in fighting the illness.
