Current and future trends in tuberculosis

Tuberculosis has shown higher rate of mortality than HIV because bacteria undergoes genetic mutation and forms resistance to present effective antibiotics. In 2013 WHO detected multiple drug resistance of 480,000 cases. There has been a great success in effective techniques in preventive care, infection care and treatment. Annual mortality rate has decreased since 1990. A sequence of international clinical trials by The British Medical council research, a four drug regimen was given for use in recently diagnosed tuberculosis patient. In latest research techniques of vaccines or new drug development are used to reduce risk in latently infected people. Despite of increasing funds in tuberculosis only 20 clinical trials of drugs and 12 vaccines are conducted.
